Children from Capricorn

Vrygrond and Overcome Heights, located near Muizenberg in the Western Cape, are two of the most concentrated examples of the challenges that plague poverty-ridden communities in South Africa. Currently there are more than 5000 children aged 0 – 5 in Vrygrond, some of them are orphans, of these children, only 1680 are able to access an early learning environment and/or care and only 530 of the 5000 young children are able to access care, and they do so in an unsafe building which is overcrowded, where teachers and caregivers are not qualified and that offers little or no stimulation.

They provide employment for 10 Staff members who care, clean and cook meals for kids who are usually from a previously disadvantaged semi-urban/informal areas.
Most of their kids live in shelters and each winter that goes by more of them are absent due to illness.

Volunteers, from all over the world, like myself, come to Muizenberg to give our time and love to these children, but they need more than that!
This is why we are reaching out to you!

These children are in need of your help!

We would like to get each of them a blanket, some cloth and shoes. Also, little cots so they won't have to sleep on the floor, hygiene supplies like wipes and first aid kits, as well as some toys.
