Back to school ... we wish!

With the opening of schools having been delayed by a month, we are facing all kinds of extra expenses here at JCH.

Like having to pay for additional child care workers to look after our 64 boys and girls during the time they would normally be at school. And, because not everyone is a wiz at home schooling (just ask any parent!) and many of our children are already struggling to catch up on lessons missed before they came here – we have had to hire professional tutors as well.

Then there’s extra stationary – especially paper – so we can print out each child’s school work. And fuel for our driver to go round to the schools collecting work books and other essentials.

As you can imagine, it all costs money.

But there is a way you can help keep our kids’ education on track without breaking the bank.

Make a donation to the Johannesburg Children’s Home before the end of February – and we’ll send you (or your company) a section 18A Tax Certificate that you can use to reduce your tax burden. Plus, you’ll also earn valuable BBBEE points!

Your donation made before the end of February, will not only save you money, it will assist 64 young minds through a tough start to the year.

We don’t want to let them fall behind, through no fault of their own. They are willing to learn and put in the hard work, but we need to provide them with the tools.

So why not give yourself the joy of helping a child? And enjoy tax savings by donating online now.

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.
