Jakaranda Kinderhuis (Children’s Home), previously known as the Abraham Kriel Kinderhuis Pretoria, has been providing a safe, nurturing environment to children, aged 3 – 18, since 1987. The Organisation became a registered Non-Profit Organisation on 13 March 2002. The Organisation officially registered their new name on 18 January 2017. The Jakaranda Kinderhuis / Children’s Home provides holistic care, 24hours a day, 365 days a year.
We care for 200 children who are placed in our care by the Children’s Court. We provide them with therapy, medical care and a lovely home, where they can feel safe and loved. It is our goal to provide them with the necessary skills they will need to become responsible adults. We have 20 homes, children are divided into groups of up to 13 per house, under the supervision of house parents.
It is no secret that Non-profit Organisations’ rely heavily on the subsidies they receive from the Department. Without subsidy, organisations’ cannot provide services and fear closure. It is no secret that the subsidy only covers 50% of our monthly expenses and each month they rely on additional financial support and goods in kind from the public. Your support would be appreciated!
