There are many ways to get Involved

Child Sponsorship Programme

Our Child Sponsorship Programme enables you to sponsor individual children for an extended period of time. By doing so, you agree to make a regular contribution of R200/ (£20 / €20 / $20) per month. An annual contribution is also an option. This enables us to cover some of the expenses of raising a child. Home from Home provides a bi-annual update on the child (see Our Stories). This is a wonderful way to connect on a more personal level with our organisation.

Please contact us on to discuss how you can get involved.

Volunteer with Home from Home

One of the most rewarding ways to get involved with Home from Home is by becoming a volunteer. We accept both local and international volunteers. There are many tasks you could get involved with, from taking children on outings to providing lifts for our Foster Mums and children. We would also love to have volunteers with special skills such as counselling, physiotherapy and occupational therapy as we could incorporate these into our programmes.

Please contact us on to discuss your volunteer opportunities.

Run, Ride or Decide

We are extremely grateful to our wonderful supporters from all over the world who have joined our Royal Parks half marathon, Cape Town Cycle Tour, Two Oceans or Cape Town Marathon teams. Join our charity team and raise funds through your networks as you run or ride Cape Town’s most prestigious sporting events. You may also host your own event where you invite friends, colleagues and family to join you in an activity.

Please contact us on to discuss the event you would like to get involved in.

Give a Financial Donation

Providing a financial donation to Home from Home not only enables us to build, rent or buy the houses we use as foster homes, it enables us to provide each child with the love and comfort of a family life. Donations also ensure we are able to provide therapeutic intervention, educational assistance, counselling and extramural activities – essential building blocks of a successful future.

Leave a Legacy

A will is a personal exercise and is drafted to benefit family and loved ones first. You may however, wish to consider a charitable bequest to Home from Home. A gift that will help future generations is a perfect way to let your care and compassion continue in years to come. By including this in your will, you will be exempt from estate duty. The easiest way to do this is to add a codicil.
