 Approximately ten children finish school each year and the Home assists them with compiling their CVs, finding a job and studying further, all while starting a new life and setting up home. You can help them by assisting with accommodation, donating money or resources, assisting with job placements, or providing skills training.

We presently have 12 house units on site that accommodate 11 to 12 children per unit. Some of the rooms houses up to five children, making studying and moving around in the rooms very difficult. Most of our beds due to deteriorating conditions need to be replaced. We are calling on the support of companies and individuals to assist us to replace existing beds with bunker beds thus creating more space for our children in their rooms.

 
Extension of existing houses

We presently have 12 house units on site that accommodate 11 to 12 children per unit. We have a 10 meter by 8 meter living room area that is used for eating, doing homework, TV viewing as well as a general get-together space. We have a “stoep” area adjacent to the living area that we want to convert and make it part of the living area. This will create a bigger space for our children to spend time together and will definitely improve their present living conditions. We need companies/individuals that can supply material and service.
