Help us build strong women

During August, we celebrate women: our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, daughters and all that they mean to us. Women are the glue that holds our homes together. They continually juggle day to day life for the good of their families. Their innate strength is unfailing. They are true unsung heroines.

Sadly, girl children at the Johannesburg Children’s Home have not always had the best role models growing up. Some have been made to believe that females are less important and worthy. And it’s our job to “undo” these negative feelings.

Our experienced team provides the comfort, education and leadership to encourage girls to grow into strong, independent and successful women. But as always, it comes at a financial cost.

Whether it’s providing therapy to help them overcome a traumatic start in life and build self-esteem .... tuition to encourage an interest in cooking or fashion ... paying for hair styling, make up and body care products ... It all mounts up when you have so many kids in the family!

Your donation – made right now online – will help towards these needs, and give a shy, young girl the chance to grow into a responsible, educated and well-grounded individual. So please, will you act now to help?

Any amount you can spare makes a difference and will be so gratefully received. Thank you.

How to help

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

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.

Visit our virtual store to choose items for our kids – and make today extra special!

Run a marathon ... enter a cycle race ... or create your own event to help our kids.

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.
