Amazing Grace Childrens Home

Amazing Grace is currently home to over 100 children between the ages of 2 and 19. This NPO was founded by Ms Busiswe Grace Mashaba in 1989. The home provides a safe space where the children can engage in recreational activities, receive basic medical care, and have access to nutritious meals, often supplemented from their own vegetable garden. It provides a day care centre for the young and facilitates the transporting of the children to nearby schools. Many of the children do not have any identification documentation (as a result of child trafficking) and this prevents them from being able to register at a government school; this heavily administrative task is part of the Amazing Grace’s commitment to helping the children to integrate successfully into the schooling system.

Jabulani Khakhi Boys Home

Jabulani Khakhi Boys is situated in the heart of Berea Johannesburg. It is a charity children’s home dedicated to positively impacting the lives of street kids. Founded and run by Stefanie Burnett, Jabulani Khakibos is a home established for up to 35 boys, previously abused, abandoned or orphaned and living on the streets. Many children have had to escape exploitative home environments, but then they face another set of challenges once on the streets. In addition to the lack of basic necessities, they are vulnerable to alcohol, substance abuse, crime, and sexual and physical violence. Jabulani provides a loving, safe place and a caring environment in which children can flourish. Ongoing financial support as well as community involvement is needed to help grow these boys into grounded and balanced men.

1Vision

“We rejoice, sing, dance and celebrate because the children who were regarded as disposable, unwanted, “onkruid” (rubbish), inferior,”malundi” or a nuisance to society (like Khakibos), have now become a sweet smelling perfume – sought after, a pleasure to be with prized, valuable, welcome citizens of our Rainbow Nation”

Phuthaditjaba Community Centre serves as a haven for the poor and vulnerable.
They also have an after-school centre for children to do their homework, a library and computer centre and a nursery school. in South Africa, arises from a deep-seated desire to ensure that as many people as possible are afforded the opportunity to live with dignity.
