The plight of children in need of care have challenged society for decades. Attempts by people to address social problems crippling society have had limited success. The prevalence of poverty, violence, crime, drugs and alcohol abuse and HIV/AIDS continues to be areas of major concern. Many children from birth become victims of social evils facing society.
For the past 86 years the St Theresa‘s Children‘s Home has provided accommodation and care for orphaned and vulnerable children. The cottage system implemented at the Home provides an atmosphere where our boys feel part of a family unit. The primary concern is to ensure that the physical, psychological and emotional needs of our boys are met. The developmental programmes provided at the Home attempts to strengthen and promote the interests of our boys.
