Reach their potential and dream big...

Welcome To The South African Children’s Charitable Trust

 

The South African Children’s Charitable Trust believes that every child, no matter what their background has the right to reach their potential and dream big. Current circumstances do not define who we become and it is vital to empower every child with this belief in themselves.

Working with our chosen partners, we help support these vital organisations to help ensure that along with the basic rights of food, clothes, accommodation and education, that the maintenance of the buildings and grounds that these children are living in are equally meeting their developing needs. This also includes working closely with the surrounding communities. As a charity we also raise awareness of the issues faced by those in Oprhan care to ensure that these young people are treated with respect.

Summer 2021

As with last year, this has been a very challenging time for all involved.  A second lock down and uncertainty in every sector has had a massive impact on the charity sector and giving.  We have been grateful for all the amazing supporter we have around the world and here in the UK.  Despite all the challenges we are facing, it is those who are working on the ground and in both the Children's villages and Medical Centres that are the real heroes.  We have all been inspired hearing from those who are home schooling groups of children with little resources, access to education or in medical centres helping the most vulnerable.  

Planning fundraising events has been tricky as restrictions continue to change, but there is a glimmer of hope as we move towards Autumn that we can start planning again - fingers crossed. 

January 2021

It was with Great Delight and Support that we Managed to raise and meet our Xmas Wish Appeal Target .  A HUGE thank you to everyone involved.

Kindness Card Project - Giving young people the chance to spread kindness

  • Every child has it in them to make a difference to another person no matter what their circumstances and this can be done through a simple kind act. Every child/young person has a value.
  •  
  • By creating a kindness card children/young people are given the opportunity to look for similarities rather than see differences when thinking about others and to break down these perception barriers.
  •  
  • Please see the news section or get in touch for further information on our exciting project!

 

We are proud that 100% of every penny and gift aid raised goes directly to support these amazing children/young people and every donation no matter how small is very much appreciated and valued.
