What your points will do
Contribute to an integrated programme working with street children in Ekurhuleni that helps children to find and reunite with their families.
Kids Haven was founded in response to the many children on the streets of Benoni. The Haven provides a safe and secure environment for the boys and girls who have lived and worked on the streets or have been removed from abusive homes. Children arrive at Kids Haven from extremely poor and dysfunctional family circumstances. The Haven's intervention makes it possible for the children to be rehabilitated and placed back into formal school environments. They continue working with the children and their families after the placement to restore the family bond. The organisation applies a systematic approach - a combination of outreach, residential rehabilitation, tracing and supporting of the families and family reunification. They work closely with the Department of Social Development and the police and social workers.
The family reunification programme is ongoing. The funding requested will enable the reunification team to cover the costs of tracing the families of 10 children. This will be of enormous benefit to the child, the family and the broader community.
