Become a Sponsor of the Ekurhuleni Drop-in Center for Orphans and Vulnerable Children

The Ekurhuleni Drop-in Center for Orphans and Vulnerable Children is a safe-haven for many orphaned and vulnerable children in the Acornhoek area of South Africa. The Center supports over 230 children on a daily basis. The Center provides meals, clothing, care and love 365 days a year and is a shining light in the area.

Seeds of Light supports Ekurhuleni through our Ekurhuleni Sponsorship Program. This program is modeled after the traditional African principle of Ubuntu, which loosely translates “I am because you are.” Ubuntu is the ancient tribal teaching about sharing, caring, and loving one’s neighbor and is the essence of any sustainable community.

The Center currently receives limited assistance from the Social Development Department (government reimbursement) for their basic costs. They need additional funds to support all of the children and to provide extra programs and high-quality caregiving.

If you would like to support the Center we invite you to become a monthly donor. Your monthly donation will go directly to the Ekurhuleni Center for Orphans and Vulnerable Children.

A common donation is $50 per month which supports one child for food and care. However, any amount is appreciated and will be well used.

To donate and become a sponsor please click on the Donate button below, indicate this is a recurring donation, and leave a note in the ‘Add Special Instructions’ box that your donation is for the Ekurhuleni Center -or just say ‘center’ and we will know who you mean!

Of course, feel free to make a one-time donation if you are unable to become a sponsor at this time. Everything the Center receives helps the children.

South African donors are invited to contact us directly via email to arrange direct payment at
