I Care establishes relationships of trust with children, essential for further intervention to take place. I Care have Hope Centres in Durban and Johannesburg where the children’s basic needs are met i.e. medical, nutritional and emotional. It is a safe place to come to off the streets and it is from here we are able to begin their rehabilitation or reunification process.We also have a rehabilitation centre where the children spend 3 months changing their addictive natures. We then educate them and our ultimate aim is that they become effective members of society.
