Jo’burg Children’s Home
Every child at the Johannesburg Children’s Home receives not only a home but also guidance, support and care which helps them to realise their potential, overcome a traumatic past and become an active member of society. Not only do the older children head out to schools in the area, but the home houses a pre-school as well as an early childhood development centre. What’s more, the food gardens and fruit trees yield a generous crop and provide the children with home-grown, seasonal produce all year round. So if you’re looking to support a sustainability project, have goods to donate (clothing, non perishable food, toiletries, stationery, household items) to their thrift shop, would like to stay in the self-catering accommodation or simply buy a book from the well-stocked and super-organised second-hand bookshop, the Johannesburg Children’s Home is a cause worth supporting.
