We are a registered PBO and NPO operating in the Zandspruit Informal Settlement, catering for 300 children. Our Preschool has 60 children, ranging in age from 4 - 6, taught by qualified Play-with-a-Purpose teachers.
Our Aftercare Centre has 200 children, ages 6-17, who attend every afternoon after school, who are provided with a place of safety where they get homework tutoring, Maths and English tuition, and have the opportunity to play sport and cultural activities, facilitated by 10 Educators. We also provide emotional and social support, as well as a full meal every day.
The Golang Aftercare Centre was our first project. After visiting the informal settlement of Zandspruit in Honeydew at the beginning of 2002, and witnessing the desperate living conditions of thousands of people, we felt the need to make a difference – a real urge to do something for the children of the community. We met with a local Pastor who suggested we start a care facility in the afternoons to keep the children off the streets – away from prostitution, drugs and alcohol and so the Golang Aftercare Centre was born. What initially started off as a once a week “sandwiches and play afternoon”, is now a five-days-a-week, cooked meal, holistic stimulating program, including homework supervision. Our vision is to provide a safe, nurturing environment for the children of Zandspruit, where we treat them as special individuals and guide them spiritually, emotionally, socially, mentally and recreationally
