Help our kids reach their next milestone

If you have children or grandchildren of your own, you'll know how exciting it is to see them achieving each new 'milestone'.

Whether it's learning to walk or talk ... starting 'big school' ... passing Matric ... or starting tertiary studies – each is an important step in their journey to adulthood. And just as your children need help and encouragement to reach the next milestone, so too do ours!

But sadly, most can't count on their own mothers and fathers for this. They only have us – and you – to cheer them on.

Your donation, made online right now, could touch one of the little ones who'll be starting big school in January. Some are a little nervous ... others are wildly excited and looking forward to shopping for brand new school uniforms, shoes, backpacks, pencils, crayons and notebooks.

Could you spare R260 or R520 to ensure they have everything they need? We're hoping that you can ... and that you'll be there with us in spirit when we drop them off at the school gates for the very first time.

The teens starting high school next year will be feeling so grown up and wanting to look their best. Having smart new uniforms and sports equipment goes a long way towards dispelling the stigma of coming from a children's home.

Some of those writing Matric will need extra lessons. And there'll be matric dance dresses and suits to provide ... as well as matric blazers or jackets.

How sad it would be if any of these milestones were spoilt because there are no proud parents to provide for them.

Please will you join together with us to ensure our kids are supported every step of the way?

They may not have moms and dads they can depend on. But as long as people like you care about them, they'll have everything they need.

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.
