PLEASE DONATE: The truth is that the Homestead cannot survive or help over 400 children a week without your support and donations.   R200 will feed a child for a month, R1000 will pay for special schooling for a term,  R10 000 will provide a Child and Youth Care Worker to look after 30 children for two months.  Your donation will make a direct impact on a child’s life.  It is your regular monthly donations, of even modest amounts, that remain the backbone and foundation of the Homestead and we remain deeply touched by the empathy and care so many show, through their contributions, to the children the Homestead works with.  We remained humbled that you all continue to entrust the Homestead with the important task of addressing the plight of the chronically neglected, sexually and physically abused and exploited street children of Cape Town.  Thank you.

The Homestead maintains the following South African compliance registrations:

Non Profit Organisation: NPO 003-217  (Department of Social Development)

Please help us to get and keep children off the street and restructure their shattered lives.
