We help vulnerable children to break the negative cycle of abuse

March 4, 2020 in Uncategorized

Vulnerable children…

“We help vulnerable children to break the negative cycle of abuse and neglect they have been born into, preventing them from ending up on the streets exposed to drug abuse, gang violence, poverty, and crime.”

Dedicated help for 144 vulnerable children

In 1883 two Sunday school teachers started a care facility for vulnerable children. What began as a haven for six children has grown into a care facility for 144 vulnerable children placed in the care of the Durbanville Kinderhuis by the South African Courts.

The children’s home fills the gap in service provision for vulnerable children with dedicated, professional services. They support not only the children in need of care but also their families, with the goal of restoring them to a healthy family relationship.

Holistic support

This support continues into young adulthood. “Our residential and therapeutic programme doesn’t stop the day our young people turn 18 years old,” explains Johanna Strauss, the Manager of Marketing and Fundraising. “We believe that our children deserve every opportunity to succeed in life.”

Planning and dedication to detail

With specialised units in their support programme like a community Bridging programme, Early Childhood Development, occupational therapy, psychometric assessment and remedial support, they are ensuring the children at Durbanville Kinderhuis are given everything they need to thrive.

We rely on donations

For as little as R100 per month you can sponsor a child.
