Your donation has enabled us to implement therapeutic, developmental and recreactional programs. Each child has their own personal file with recordings of their milestones, their achievements and their challenges. Each child receives individual counselling and group counselling and this has been so helpful with some of the bad behaviour that we are experiencing.

Intervention takes place and we also use the referal systems where we need to. We have a volunteer doctor who sees the children every Friday and she highlights or alerts us to any emergency sistuation around the health of the children. Our current staff who handles the children are 20 in total . We have 4 staff being trained to receive the qualifications  for child andd youth care worker. The cost attached are R10 500 per person for one year. This necessary training will equip the staff to deal better with our children. Our dream is to give the other 16 staff members the same opportunity offered to the first 4 staff. Two of our Fikelela Children Centre staff has been trained as Gender Based Violence Champions.

Outings & Schools : Currently we have 11 children grade 1 to 3 all of them passed their grades. We have had birthday parties, celebrating their good pass. they have been to the aquarium and the Noddy party.

Their daily programs are facilitated by qualified teachers and volunteers. The following are their main activites: listening skills, improving memory skills, road safety, reading skills, art skills. The story telling has assisted the children with improving their communication and correct use of English language. Our children need the support of an occupational therapist as well as a child psycologist.

We are trying our best to do some additional fundraising to assist our older girls with their traumatic experiences. The children are very happy despite their baggage that they carry and it is wonderful to see their reaction when new babies and children arrive. Thank you for believing in us.

Love the Fikelela Family

Jerry Giraffe and the 16 days of activism

16 days of activism training
16 days of activism training

The churches that was trained most of them have completed their 10 week program and are ready for the next bunch of young children who is waiting to be trained.


As the “16 Days of activism against women and children abuse” have approached we are excited to engage more and more with various communities where our children are facing abuse on a high scale, abuse of not being able to be in school, daily nutrition’s and loving environment. We have trained 35 adults to be Jerry’s within their communities and amongst the young people.


For 2017 we have so much things lined up working with different Organizations implementing Jerry on a bigger scale, to do more trainings and roadshows to Communities. We want to bring back the mind set of your child is my child in our Communities


We are striving to be a Ministry that support our children, to be a beacon of hope for all who are facing abuse and especially our children who is suffering the most at this time.

MAN (DELA) DAY AT FIKELELA

Mandela day is always  a day of great excitement at the Fikelela Childrens Centre as lots of visitors come to play with the kids and to volunteers

First up was the Traffic department all dressed up.. They taught the kids how to be safe crossing a road. The children were a bit scared of Dan the Cat but cheered up when snacks were brought out!

Then came teh Police, not dressed up in uniform. It was very special for the kids to play with men as all of their carers are women and they dont get many chanced to interact with men

And then came Uncle tony from Cosatu who treated them all to a KFC! What a day!

For our kids, many who have only experienced abuse, neglect or abandonment from their biological fathers, it was a wonderful day to meet strong, caring male role models and to see the kind of men they can grow up to become. What a wondeful MAN(DELA) day!
