"Trauma is a real and definite obstacle for children in South Africa to understand and embrace God's Love and deliverance. Many need a life line first before they can accept Christ as their Saviour."
Results of the Optimus Study On Child Abuse, Violence and Neglect in SA released by South Africa's Centre for Justice and Crime Prevention show that by the time South African children are 15 -17 years old, many of them have already experienced sexual, physical or emotional abuse, neglect, or have been exposed to high levels of family and community violence.
These children can be helped by Talking Tigers for Toddlers ... decent Tigers. They're saved by Grace and sent by Grace to share the Gospel Message with their kiddo friends.
But more important, they council, comfort and encourage children in need.
Press the soft toy's belly button, and it shares some essential information about God, and how He cares about you and your circumstances.
The toy also shares information such as Helpline numbers and websites where children can report abuse and ask for help. (The information depends on the language area and the organisations we work with in the local context.)
This is a joint project Global Recordings Network Southern Africa (GRNSA) runs in partnership with:
- MegaVoice, who manufactured the Envoy ST player, and supply the soft toy tigers;
- Home of Creativity, who wrote and own the script.
You can be part of this project and support a child in need by sponsoring a gentle Talking Tiger for a special toddler out there who desperately needs to know God and His love.
- The price of the ENVOY 2 ST is R370.00
- The price of the soft toy is R205.00
- Total price of unit R575.00
The player is a good quality device and also makes navigation easy between specific chats the facilitators may want children to hear. The player comes with a built-in battery and solar panel.
