Our Safe Haven Youth Center
Our vision is to have a safe haven for our youth, a peaceful place away from negative influences. It will be a place where individuality will be respected whilst teaching the value of conforming to sound social norms. Our aim is to enrich the lives and minds of our participants, so that upon departure of our facility they can lead productive, sustainable lives – becoming contributing members of their communities.
And as you can imagine there are alot of things we will need to get our safe-haven up and running. Any donations will be much appreciated.
What you can help us with
We have identified a piece of land in Springs.
It meets all our requirements for our Safe Haven Youth Center.
Any assistance in obtaining this land would be greatly appreciated.
•Bus (to transport 26 residents on day and overnight trips, as well as take children to school)
•Minibus (to transport smaller groups of residents or volunteers)
•Bakkie (for collections and deliveries)
Furniture and accessories are needed such as:
- Bunk beds
Our residents will be in need of school supplies for their studies and development programs.
Other supplies include:
- Printer & paper
- White board
- Sound system
- School bags
- School uniform
One of our focus points at the center will be self-care and personal hygiene. Therefore we will greatly appreciate donations of toiletries such as:
- Soap & body lotion
- Shampoo & conditioner
- Toilet paper
- Washing powder
- Various other cleaning products
We will need people to help run our facility, and we can’t expect everyone to work for free.
- Computer Skills
- English & soft skills
- Business training
- Skills development
- Girl’s & boy’s residence managers

These are just some of the basic needs for our Safe Haven. Many other costs will arise such as food, maintenance and medical bills that will need to be paid for. Together we can make a difference. With your donations we will be impacting many valuable lives, uplifting communities and creating a brighter future for generations to come.
