Learning healthy habits ... for life!

We're so proud of our netball girls. In the nicest way possible, they're learning the value of fresh air and exercise – not to mention teamwork – as they put in the hours of practice necessary to shine at this competitive sport.

But it's sad to see some of them playing in old leggings and t-shirts instead of smart netball uniforms. Especially when they get challenged by teams at other children's homes and clubs.

Although some of them are still quite young, they're all in the process of growing from girls into women. And like girls everywhere, they're conscious of how they look, even more than how they play! It would mean the world to them to have proper netball skirts and shirts, and bibs with their numbers on.

And if kind friends like you will donate online right now we can make that happen! Your gift of any amount will help towards the cost of kitting out the team in proper netball uniforms. We also appreciate donations towards the cost of coaching and transport to 'away' games.

All too soon, these girls will be grown up and ready to start independent lives outside our home. But they'll never forget the pleasure they got from being part of the netball team – the sense of 'belonging' and pride in succeeding at sports. It will be a huge encouragement to remain fit and healthy into adulthood. And your gift made online right now will help keep that determination alive.

So please will you make your contribution now towards essential sports equipment? Thank you for caring!

How to help

Bringing up a child is expensive! And when you have a 'family' of 64, every extra bit of cash helps.

Order delicious party platters at reasonable rates ... or make use of our laundry service.

If you can spare an hour or two a week, please consider volunteering at our Home?

Check out our 'wish list' for items needed right now. Or contact us for more information.

Download the free app (Android, iPhone or Blackberry) and scan our code to donate safely and easily.

Run a marathon ... enter a cycle race ... or help our kids by asking friends to donate to JCH instead of buying you a birthday or anniversary gift.

Putting the pieces back together

The Johannesburg Children's Home provides
a safe refuge for 64 children of all races
who have been found in need of care by the Children's Court.
