Help Educate Trafficked Child Sex Abuse Survivors

by Berea Hillbrow Home of Hope


Berea-Hillbrow Home of Hope is a home caring for and educating 76 trafficked, sexually exploited and orphaned children. Beyond providing stability to these very vulnerable girls, this project is about giving back choice, dignity and the chance at a very different kind of future than the path they set out on. The home currently provides for 5 girls in daycare, 16 in primary school, 37 in high school (6 of them seniors), 8 university students and 10 peer educators, girls waiting for study funding.

Berea-Hillbrow Home of Hope operates solely on donations which makes it difficult to provide the girls with the stability they need. The rescued children in our care do not have identity documents or birth certificates. Consequently, they do not receive any form of financial help from the government. According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime a third of trafficked victims are children and over half of all victims are female mostly trafficked into labor and sexual exploitation.


In Africa, sexual abuse of children is an everyday reality with catastrophic results. Berea-Hillbrow Home of Hope provides a safe home where, sometimes for the very first time in their lives, children are loved and cared for. Seventy-six girls are currently in the care of Berea-Hillbrow Home of Hope. The girls are counseled, given health-care, schooled and supported in their studies.

Long-Term Impact

We operate in the "hot-spots" of Johannesburg - areas characterized by high unemployment, collapse of societal values and dominance of ruthless pimps and drug dealers. Since 1994 Berea-Hillbrow Home of Hope has raised eight thousand children through outreach and rehabilitation programs. Our mission is to honor the rights of children to live free from sexual abuse, trafficking and exploitation, to pursue their education and to grow into independent, productive adults.
