Help Raise Money for South Africa's Home from Home Trust

An update from Uthando - a South African community charity Jacada Travel support: 

Thanks to our incredible supporters last year “Team Uthando” (James and Xolani) raised R117 000.00 cycling the Cape Town Cycle Tour for Home from Home.

Once again, this year we are cycling for Home from Home and really hope to beat that total….please help us to help this amazing organisation that is helping so many children.

The 109km race take place on the 6th of March 2016 and it is the largest timed cycle tour in the world: http://www.cycletour.co.za/  

Our goal is to raise at least R109,000.00 for Home from Home, R1000.00 for every km.  If we can get 109 companies to each sponsor R1,000.00 we can achieve this goal. 

Home from Home

The Home from Home Trust was registered in May 2005, as a Non-Profit Organisation (NPO) and a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO).

Their founding trustees, Jane Payne and Pippa Shaper, worked in children’s homes for many years and realised that this type of environment was not best equipped to deal with the issues often very vulnerable children face.

As a result, they developed a new model of care, and out of this the Home from Home Trust was born. 

Home from Home provides supported and supervised community-based foster care for orphaned, abused, neglected and vulnerable children through a network of small, family homes in disadvantaged communities in South Africa and at present have the capacity to care for up to 210 children in their 35 homes located across 15 disadvantaged communities, including two specialized homes for profoundly disabled children.
