The Johannesburg Charity Committee has achieved a great project this year, dedicating its time, fundraising activities and the nomination of 2016 Charity of the Year to the Little Rose Centre in Kliptown, one of the poorest areas in Soweto (Johannesburg). The Little Rose Centre is a creche, a shelter, and a Youth Centre where 140 children are accommodated and receive daycare services, kindergarten classes, after school programs, computer classes, dance workshops, and a soup kitchen.
The generous and resourceful committee decided to help the centre by financing an ingenious project that would have substituted the precarious and dangerous structures in which the Centre’s activities used to take place. The Johannesburg’s staff proposed the smart and durable solution to turn containers into classrooms and living spaces. Inaugurated in 2016, the new Little Rose’s structures have been welcomed by the joy and gratefulness of kids and volunteers of the Centre, as you can see from the video below.
