The Homestead helps street children to stabilize in a safe environment. Deal with substance abuse, behaviour and trauma issues, reignite their education and development and move back to their families when possible or to our Launchpad Project


The children. 65 former street children between 7 and 17 find a new home in the shelter of The Homestead in Cape Town. They can go to school again, experience everyday life, play soccer and much more. 160 street children are supported annually by the Homestead housing projects.


The handover. KENIAL e.V. will start to Cape Town at the beginning of December to arrange the handover on site. Shirts, socks, shoes, balls and small tatonkis will be delivered.
