Meet the 2021 Team
As we head into this new and dawning year, we’d love to introduce you to our 2021 Team! These amazing people are on the frontlines of future-building work. They give selflessly to serve within Botshabelo and are passionate about what they do!
Learn More about Botshabelo.
Botshabelo is a Tswana word meaning a ‘place to run to.’ Established as an NPO 20 years ago in Midrand, South Africa, we are passionate about transforming children’s lives through excellent education and residential care.
Urban Kids Educentre began with 7 children and 2 educators, and has quickly grown to over 80 students in 5 classrooms. We are passionate about Early Childhood Education and laying solid foundations for these children to build on throughout their schooling career.
The Babies Home opened in March 2000 in response to the plight of babies being abandoned in
hospitals or left to die due to poverty and HIV. Our aim has always been to provide a loving, caring, homely environment addressing each child’s needs and enable them to grow to their full potential.
UpliftED Training Programme to support ECD centres in impoverished communities. This programme has
proved critical, as most of the teachers in crèches in townships are completely ill-equipped and untrained. Our training programme offers these women theoretical and practical training and ongoing support and empowerment, as well as educational equipment for their school.
Urban Closet is our 2nd hand Shop to support Botshabelo programmes as an income-generation project, with a secondary purpose of helping women with micro-enterprises who resell into their communities, and to be a conduit for goods to flow freely into our programmes and into other NPOs
Last but definitely not least, our Office Team. Running the organization from behind the scenes.
Together we are making a difference!!!!!!
