The Organization

The Durbanville Children's Home is a non-profitble organization that was established in 1883 as the then Kinderzendinghuis. Our home has been the refuge to children from all races and creeds, for over 124 years. Our children come from seriously disadvantaged environments caused by HIV/AIDS, drugs and divorce. We accommodate 145 children in 12 house units. Our children are from both sexes and all ages from birth to 18 years as well as all races. These children often need therapy as well as specialised care. Most of our children have had to face extreme trauma in there (sic) young lives and as a result of broken homes, extreme poverty, HIV and many other factors. Many of them have been neglected, abused sexually, emotionally and physically and experience traumatic psychological effects thereof.
