HEALING BROKEN HEARTED CHILDREN
OUR SAFE HOMES, THERAPEUTIC CARE AND SOCIAL WORK PROTECT AND MEND THE HEARTS AND LIVES OF ALL OF OUR SOCIETIES PHYSICALLY AND EMOTIONALLY HURT YOUNG PEOPLE.
Thousands of South African children still get lost to the trauma of abandonment, exclusion, loss, neglect, abuse, or assault every year. Physical and emotional abuse and tough circumstances compel these vulnerable young to make lonely life choices no child should ever have to make; choices that steal their lives, their talent and their light forever. These are the children that Girls and Boys Town care about.
By making our hurt young whole again, healthy individuals and families grow, happier and safer societies thrive and economies get stronger.
For the past 62 years, Girls and Boys Town South Africa has provided safe homes, therapeutic care, social work in communities and life and learning support services to heal the hearts and lives of broken-hearted children and their families.
Since forming in 1958, our S.H.IN.E programme and its unique peer group system has successfully restored light, strength and direction to the lives of over 200 000 children already.
However, we cannot do it alone. We rely on funding almost entirely from the contributions of generous and caring people like you. But we need more help to heal the many more hearts. If, like us, you think our broken hearted children’s lives should change, please help us in any way you can.

It is wonderful to give and receive gifts for Birthdays, Weddings, Christmas and other significant life celebrations.

LEAVE A LEGACY IN YOUR WILL
Where there’s a will there’s a way …
… to keep on helping vulnerable young boys and girls for years to come!
Especially if you’ve supported Girls & Boys Town in the past – or you wanted to, but couldn’t afford to make a gift– your Will provides the perfect opportunity for your caring concern to touch the lives of girls and boys far into the future.
By leaving a bequest to Girls & Boys Town, or ceding an endowment or insurance policy to us, you’ll ensure we’ll always be here for youth in need.
Best of all, you don’t need to spend any of your money now! Only when you no longer need it will the money or possessions you leave behind be put to work to change a child’s future.
Many people put off making a Will because they think it’s morbid or ‘tempting fate’. In fact, it’s a necessary and sensible step that brings great peace of mind, knowing your affairs are in order.
