The Homestead (Projects for Street Children) is a registered Non-Profit Organisiation and has section 18A tax status in South Africa. We have been established since 1982 and have a simple mission – “To get and keep children off the street and reconstruct their shattered lives.” The programme, which has become a model for similar projects in South Africa, is based on developmental principles. Because there is no single solution it offers a continuum of projects, both on and off the streets, which address the needs of street children and their families and through which the children can grow towards competence and self-confidence in their lives.
