13 years of exceptional service to the people of Toekies

Activities for the little ones.
 It's been 13 years and the Toekomsrus Drop-in Centre has continued to go from strength to strength.
 The facility has provided quality services to orphaned and vulnerable children, and improved the lives of countless people in the communities it serves.
 In the last financial year a number of milestones were reached, including the training of three employees as Victim Empowerment Coordinators who will assist in cases involving victimization.
 A total of 842 people received support and assistance from the Toekomsrus Drop-in Centre. Of these 416 were children.
 458 people were provided with a healthy, hot, cooked meal every day. Ten HIV/AIDS Awareness and door-to-door programmes saw 789 people reached and 173 households received services provided by the Drop-in Centre.


 "While we have made great strides, achieved much, and look forward to ever greater things in the years to come, there are a number of challenges we face," says Programme Manager, Kenneth Malepe.
 "There is a great need for more office equipment. In addition there is a shortage of items such as children's chairs, tables and kitchen equipment."
