New Jerusalem Children's Home

New Jerusalem Children’s Home is a small entity with a big vision. We aim to become one of the best children’s homes in Africa in the provision of holistic and integrated quality care to orphaned, abandoned, abused, traumatised, vulnerable and HIV positive children. Central to this aim, is the children’s future. Thus, all developments at New Jerusalem revolve around the children’s education and the protection of the environment they will live in, in years to come. New Jerusalem was founded in 2000 by Advocate Anna Mojapelo, a businesswoman and community developer and her sister Phina Mojapelo, a social worker with vast experience in working with children, youth and HIV/AIDS. Both Anna and Phina remain actively involved in the Home. Our Home is located on an agricultural smallholding of 26 000 m2 in Midrand, South Africa. The property was donated to the children by Anna Mojapelo and has been transferred into a Trust for their benefit. The current facilities comprise nurseries for the babies, dormitories for the older children, communal kitchen and dining facilities, a crèche, a Montessori pre-school, play and sports facilities and a substantial permaculture vegetable garden. New Jerusalem aims to build environmentally friendly houses on the premises so that the children can grow up in small families of 12. The first house will be complete in September 2011. New Jerusalem’s mission is located within an environmental sustainability framework and the Home has committed to use any means possible to reuse and recycle and to minimize our carbon footprint.
