Annual Review


At our Annual Review held last week at our premises in Somerset Park, loyal donors were presented with 'Appreciation Certificates' thanking them for their vital role in our work with street children.
Going far beyond simply 'getting kids off the streets' I Care's 'Cycle of care' programme has continued to turn street children into productive adults since its inception in 2002. In her speech chairman Denise Cochrane outlined our organisation's achievements during 2010.
* 104 boys were removed from the streets and sent on rehabilitation programmes or to Child Care facilities.
* 65 percent were rehabilitated.
* 53 boys returned to their family homes and are back at school while still monitored by our Aftercare team.
* 14 boys live in our houses with their house parents.
* We established a new rehabilitation centre with the capacity to accommodate up to 20 boys on each course.
Some of our children sang a carol for the guests and Qaphela gave a moving speech about his past, his transformation and his pride at being elected head boy of his school.
