The mission of Khayalethu Youth Centre is to provide intervention programmes and alternative care for street children, specifically boys, between the ages of 8 and 18.
More About Khayalethu Youth Centre
- The centre is located in Nelson Mandela Bay, South Africa.
- It meets the basic needs of street children through a holistic and developmental approach with the ultimate aim of re-socialisation and family re-unification.
- Donations are always needed for the upkeep of the centre including maintenance and books, as well as food and staff who help.
- ACVV Khayalethu Youth Centre has another branch called “Oliver House”, where young men are between 18 and 21 years of age and become involved in a skills programme or apprenticeship, over an extended period of time. This will positively enable them to re-integrate into society in a skilled and productive way while effectively providing for themselves and, hopefully, their own families some day.
