Who they are
Beautiful Gate, situated in Crossroads, provides care and support to vulnerable children, while strengthening the capacity of families within the community to care for their own and other children.

How we’re involved
Every week Lerato’s Hope volunteers assist in the charity shop, sorting donations, packing and pricing stock. This allows people in the community who have very little to purchase items they need cheaply and with dignity. 


Who they are

Abahlobo Crèche is an Early Childhood Development Center in Barcalona township. Abahlobo crèche has started out of the home of a compassionate lady, Nomahomba Sixoka affectionately known as Mama Beauty, who saw the need for a safe space for the children in her community. Abahlobo crèche provides two meals per day as well as early childhood development for 35-70 children between the ages of 0-6 years old.

How we’re involved

Lerato’s Hope has an eight year relationship with Abahlobo Crèche which has seen us rebuild the crèche with precast cement panels after it was burnt to the ground, installation of electricity and establishment of play surfaces for the children. Lerato’s Hope has built and equipped a kitchen and provides weekly food parcels that enable Mama Beauty to create two nutritious meals every day for the children attending Abahlobo crèche.
