Kids Club

Every Friday afternoon  the  children in the Westlake informal settlement queue excitedly at the community hall to go to Kids Club .  It has grown to accommodate over 300 happy children  ranging from 4 to 9 years old. They do arts and crafts, learn skills , have fun and are fed in a safe and encouraging   environment. Special guests are invited to share their own stories and to interact with the kids.  

Food packs

We distribute two types of food packs. The Emergency Food Packs are for child abandonment and are mostly non-perishable foods.  The General food pack is used to support foster families on a monthly basis and is hugely funding dependent. 

A sample pack may contain Long Life Milk, Peanut Butter, Brown Sugar, Wheat-Bix, Rice or Noodles, Soap and Washing Powder.

DIGNITY packs

Many of the children have no access to hygiene products and are therefore unkempt. They are often teased about their appearance, we give them back their dignity with the basics of personal hygiene like a toothbrush and toothpaste, soap and shampoo.

These small items are a huge positive. With your donations, we can help more children live a dignified life

What Drives Us

Our Mission

Our beloved country has an inordinate number of homeless, orphaned and vulnerable children. They are neglected, underfed and uneducated. These children have no safe home, no loving arms, and no hope for a future. They are hungry, desperate and afraid. They have no protection and no safe place in which to just be children. We want to slowly, child by precious child, change this.

We find foster parents committed to our cause, we encourage and create a support system so that these children can grow healthy, learn to read and write, be guided and inspired feel loved and cared for. The joy of seeing the transformation, in a child's eyes from despair and desperation to that of hope is truly indescribable.

With your help, we make this happen.

We started this journey of Hope 9 years ago in the lost community of Westlake. We hope to slowly expand our embrace to other areas in the Cape.  Building sustainable relationships with NGO’s, businesses, and individuals with the goal of releasing our children from spiritual, economic and social poverty to become fulfilled, responsible and productive adults.

Change starts on our doorsteps, in our closest communities and we call you to heed the desperate needs of those around us.
