Help Us

We appreciate your help – there are several ways in which you can become involved with the home and help our children.

Hosting Programme

Our children benefit enormously from visiting families and staying with them. Families and individuals who approach us are first screened by our social worker and can then take a child or children out for holidays, weekends or even just a day. The development of the children is accelerated enormously and many host parents take out children with a view to taking them in full foster care.

Foster Care and Adoption

If the parents of a child allow and it it is in the best interest of the child, the social workers can decide that a child can be taken into foster care or be adopted by a suitable family. The first concern is, however, to re-unite a child with its family if their situation improves.

Raising funds

  • ANNUAL BAZAAR & AUCTION – Usually on the last Saturday in March, we have our Bazaar and Auction and raise funds towards the ongoing needs of the home.
  • ANNUAL DANCE – Should you wish to support this event, keep in contact, as it promises a funfilled evening with friends and families.

‘Adopt’ a child

We have 49 children in the home. ‘Adopting’ a child is sponsoring a child for a period of time. The amounts below cover all costs for the child for the given period.

  • Support a child for a year with a donation of R9600.00
  • Support a child for six months at R4800.0
  • Support a child for one month at R800.00

The sponsor will receive a photo, the date of birth and drawings done by the child quarterly (if the child is old enough). They will also be informed of the child’s progress at the home.

Volunteers

Children need individual attention – more than our hard-working staff can give all the time. The support of volunteers makes a big difference in the lives of the children, who thrive under the individual attention volunteers can give them.
