THIS IS THE LITTLE ROSE CENTRE.
The Little Rose Centre is a creche, a shelter, and a Youth Centre in Kliptown, one of the poorest areas in Soweto. We accommodate 140 children, 18 of whom live at the Centre, through daycare services, kindergarten classes, after school programs, computer classes, dance workshops, and a soup kitchen.

The Little Rose Centre runs a Food programme for HIV/Aids affected Community members and families in need to ease their burden and provide nutrition.
Our kitchen is used to prepare meals for up to 140 children a day. After so many meals, our pots and pans are very old and need to be replaced.
With the new additions of our computer lab courtesy of Fujitsu, we hope to provide computer training to our staff and shelter kids. In addition, we hope to also provide necessary software for the computers.
literacy program additions
While we already offer one phase of our literacy program, we would like to be able to offer a second and third level as well in math and English.
car for taxi service
We currently accommodate 140 kids through all of our different programs. Most of the kids must walk or find a ride home each day. We would like to have a car in order to provide a safe way of getting the kids home.
