Sponsor a child today and change a life!

October 3, 2016 in Uncategorized


The biggest challenge for any welfare organisation, in our quest to render quality care, is cash flow. We have to plan our interventions around the amount of funds available. We want to call on you to consider donating R100 per month towards a specific child’s needs. This will enable us to better plan our intervention to address our children’s specific needs.

The all-inclusive cost of housing, feeding, educating, caring for and developing a child amounts to R60 000 per child per year (R5 000 per month). At present only a third of the Home’s annual budget is received from Government and the rest has to be raised by the Home itself through donations and sponsorships.

We would like to use this opportunity to ask you to sponsor a specific child for the duration of his or her stay at the Home by making a recurring monthly donation.  As a sponsor you will have the opportunity to form a personal enabling relationship with the child you sponsor, by writing to him or her, getting feedback on their progress, and receiving regular newsletters.

You will witness first-hand the remarkable improvements and growth that your financial contribution will bring about in his or her life; you will also receive an invitation to our Annual Partners Functions and a certificate confirming your commitment as a partner of the children’s home; and since the Durbanville Children’s Home is a Section 21A Public Benefit Organisation, you will be issued with a tax certificate for submission with your annual tax claim.

We still need 34 sponsors for our children. Click here should you require more information.
