ADOPT-A-HOME

We initiated a project be the change-Adopt-a-Home at the Durbanville Children’s Home to enable concerned individuals, companies, church groups or teams to adopt-a-home, becoming involved in assisting the needy houses to improve their infrastructure and to meet day-to-day needs. We are requesting your company to assist us with the upkeep of a specific House.

 

The Durbanville Children’s Home is situated on 1 Church Street, Durbanville on a large property that houses 12 separate homes where our children are staying, an administration building and ample outside space, which includes a play park and swimming pool.

Need:

  • Revamp a House unit.

Each house has four bedrooms, a lounge/dining area, bathroom facilities, kitchen and flat for the house mother/father.

 

The biggest priority in terms of upkeep and painting is the painting of the House’ exterior, as it is most exposed to the elements. Urgent action is required to prepare for the painting and to ensure that the deterioration is halted. Another area in need of urgent repair/replacement is the painting of the interior of the building, dampness at back of showers, upkeep of cupboards, and general maintenance

We are asking Companies/individuals to  invest R50 000 toward a house unit to pay for the upgrade. In addition you are most welcome to also donate toward furnishing of the unit, in return we offer you naming rights to the unit for a period of 2 years.

 

We are asking you to collaborate with us to offer our children a safe and happy environment that offers warmth and support. The main purpose of what we do is to let the children know that they are safe and that this is their home away from home.

 

We want to create a clean, inspiring environment for our 144 children to motivate them to do the same when they have families. They can then create good living conditions for their families. In this way, we can break the cycle of despair and poverty which most of them come from. We want our children to know that they have a place where they belong and where they are loved.
