Amazing Grace Childrens Home

1History
The Amazing Grace Children’s Home is a Non-Profit Organisation established in Malelane during 1989 and extended to Eikenhof during 2004. Its main objective is to take care of street children in Malelane
The organisation was established and founded by Ms Busiswe Grace Mashaba during 1989 in Malelane (Mpumalanga Province).

A house was rented at the train station to accommodate the children. In 1997 the organisation was registered with the Mpumalanga, Health and Social Welfare Development under section 30 of the Child Care Act. In 1998 the Centre affiliated with the White River Children’s Welfare Organisation and the Malelane Child Welfare Society was established. In 2002 the name was changed to Amazing Grace Children’s Home (AGCH) and registered as a Non Profit Organisation (NPO 005-937).

During 2004 the District Apostle of the New Apostolic Church, Johan R Kitching, visited AGCH Malelane and was touched by what he saw and experienced. He then offered AGCH the church land at Eikenhof (a small holding) to be utilised as a second home for AGCH to provide shelter for children who are victims of the social ills of our society; mainly within the Gauteng Province.

The homes provide safety, shelter, food, clothing and love to abused, neglected and orphaned children. Some of the children are HIV positive who daily receive their ARVs. Many of the children who have grown up in the homes have gone on to lead happy successful lives.

2Objectives
To provide a place of safety to children from difficult life situations.
To improve the quality of life of children by encouraging them to avoid situations that are potentially harmful to their physical emotional and psychological well-being;
To provide a transitional healthy environment where all their basic needs are met;

To facilitate the process of re-integrating each child in a loving, caring and homely environment;
To follow up and obtain feedback on the progress of the child in the re-integrated environment.
To embark on/support and/or develop programmes that will facilitate the prevention of conditions that will harm the physical, emotional and psychological well being of the children.
To teach each child good and acceptable behaviour; through basic rules and guidelines to adhere to for their own well-being and for the protection of all children, adults and employees at AGCH.
To empower the staff with skills development to become competent community members and also assist in alleviating poverty by creating jobs.

Jabulani Khakhi Boys Home

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 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.

1People helped by the project
Jabulani Khakibos is a home established for up to 35 boys, previously abused, abandoned or orphaned.
2Our Vision

A charity children’s home dedicated to positively impacting the lives of street kids .

“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”

Phuthadishaba Community Centre

The Phuthaditjaba Centre in Alexandria is testament to local Alexandra philanthropist and ‘legend’, Linda Twala. He started the Phuthaditjaba in the 1960’s as a centre providing care and food for the elderly in the area, but it has grown from strength to strength, from a tin clinic to a proper satellite clinic, a proper library, community board room, community hall, soup kitchen, and the future centre of excellence. 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.

“Too many of Alex’s and South Africa,s problems is skills development.” Linda Twala


The Phuthaditjaba Centre has, for example, a sewing facility where individuals are taught marketable and has a more comprehensive approach to education for all levels at the Centre.
Besides ensuring that the elderly are well cared for Phuthaditjaba creates something that is essential, a safe haven for children.
