Welcome to Makhulong Child & Youth Care Centre, where transformation and compassion unite to create a brighter future for vulnerable children. As a registered non-profit organisation with an exceptional B-BBEE SED recognition of 100%, we’ve been nurturing young lives since 1977. Departing from the old institutional approach in 1999, we embraced a new, decentralised model, placing our children in smaller homes closer to their original communities. This fosters a sense of belonging and allows them to flourish amidst familiar surroundings.
Makhulong is proudly affiliated with uMephi (AFM Welfare Council), a registered NGO housing over 90 projects dedicated to caring for ±300 traumatised children of all races, aged between 0 and 18 years. These children have faced the devastating effects of abuse, neglect, and abandonment, leading to their removal from their parents’ care. But hope shines through within our two houses, House Jabulani and House Shalom. Each home is guided by compassionate house parents, acting as substitute parents for the nine children in their care. Supported by qualified Social Workers, Councillors, and the Makhulong Child & Youth Care Centre Committee, we create a nurturing and healing environment, empowering these young souls to rise above their past and embrace a promising future. Join us in making a difference in their lives and participate in this incredible journey of love and transformation.
