Personal message

Pride Shelter is the only LGBTQI+ shelter in South Africa, based in Cape Town. We have existed since 2011 in the heart of the City.

Winter is approaching quickly, and we have challenges with the leaking in the dorms where the residents sleep. The Kitchen area needs a fresh coat of paint, including the food pantry.

We urgently need painting, scaffolding, electrical maintenance, plumbing, roof fixing, and other minor repairs for all the dorms.

Timeframe to raise R80 000 - 3 months

Pride Shelter would be able to further offer a safe and queer-friendly space to more LGBTQI+ homeless individuals from across the African continent.

The residents would be able to sleep warmly in their respective rooms with no stress of broken windows or leaking from the roof.

1)Exterior construction of the building - scaffolding and painting

2)Fixing of roof

3)Interior construction - plastering and painting of all rooms in the House

4)Electrical maintenance

5)Plumbing maintenance

6)Fixing of windows and doors

7)Fixing the security gate
