bringing new life to those who need it most
A HOME OF DIGNITY
Founded in 2016, the New Life Children’s Home aims to provide a place of love, safety, care and Godliness to the most vulnerable members of society – the orphans.

According to UNICEF, there are currently 3.9 million orphans in South Africa. Without the support of parents, this orphan generation is subject to extreme stigma, exploitation, neglect, disease and a host of other circumstances unseen by any previous generation. Whether on the streets or heading a household at 12 years old, they are twice as likely to discontinue their schooling and twice as likely to contract HIV/AIDS.
In 2016, the New Life Children’s Home was established as a non-profit organisation. Our aim is to provide quality care in a safe and loving home for vulnerable children, irrespective of race, gender or age. We want to give children the opportunity to have a new life – filled with hope, excitement, faith and love. We also want to protect and encourage all the children we help through focus on positive behaviour and Godly principles.
Through research and interaction with those who are trying to solve the orphan crisis in our city, we have come up with a children’s home model that we believe will make a permanent and positive change in the lives of all the children involved. We want to create a beautiful home for over 40 children – a place that children can be proud of calling home. We believe this can be done best by creating a state of the art ‘container home’ with well designed and welcoming spaces.
As with any big project, the New Life Children’s Home is going to require funding in order to launch and run. We are very privileged to already have received land and sponsorship to build a few of the homes already. We are looking for businesses and individuals to partner with us for this great cause. Corporate donations are not only tax deductible, but will also count towards the BEE spend. Together we really can make a lasting difference – bringing new life to those who need it most.
We Have the Power to Impact Our Future, and We’re Doing Something About It
Our 1st home – the Yellow Home – opened on the 24th September 2018! It now houses a family of 9, children who have become brothers and sisters, and a house parent that has become their mother.
Our 2nd home – the Orange Home – opened on the 16th June 2019. This was a significant day for us because it was Fathers Day and Youth Day, and this home was built for the “Fatherless Youth” in the city! This was also the 1st home to have a separate disabled unit on the ground floor. This home now also hosts a beautiful family of 9 children, a house mother, and a full-time care taker.
Our 3rd home – the Green Home – was also opened on the 16th June 2019, and is filled with a beautiful new blended family!
Our 4th home – the Blue House – is close to being open, and we are now in the process of hiring staff for this purpose. To apply to head up this family, click the button below:
