Emasithandane, affectionately known as Emasi, is a home for vulnerable children. Currently, there are over 28children sheltered by Emasi (including 4 community children who receive their meals and clothing from the home). Emasi consists of three very small bedrooms which house all the children in addition to small common spaces. The vision is to extend the premises to better address the needs of the children.
The aim of Emasi is to address not only the basic needs such as clothing, shelter, education, and food but also a holistic and nurturing environment which will help facilitate personal growth in the face of extreme odds.
The children at Emasi and in the local community face many obstacles and live in an area experiencing very high rates of unemployment, crime, and overcrowding. Despite these challenges we continue to work on the development of new strategies to provide meaningful support to the children and in the community.
We are grateful to generous donors without whom the home could not function. More importantly, we are blessed to have these beautiful children in our lives.
Emasithandane is currently wishing to get the house next door but we do not have finds so it seems possible for us to get that house. And that house next door is having a bigger space which can help us with study room for the children and small playing space. But the estimation of building the study room or room for six children can cost around +_R80000.00 and the estimation for the house next door +_R180000.00.
