Welcome to Louis Botha Kinderhuis

At 100 years we are the oldest children’s home in the capital, a safe haven for children who have been removed by the South African Children’s Court for reasons of abuse, neglect and poverty.

It is our mission to provide love and laughter together with all the necessary therapy, education and a safe environment for the children in our care.

Your donation will make a huge difference in the lives of our children!
