Currently, in Lanseria, we have 3 trained Home Based Carers in this area which cover Lanseria; Malatjie; Lion Park; Drummond and Thabo Mbeki Village. There are 26 children living in these informal settlements. All of these children are still younger and have not headed into the working world yet but we have our first matriculant heading out this year (2021). They receive toiletries and food once a month.
One of the Home Based Carers has started a pre-school in Cosmo City which is a venue for us and the children of Hlanganani. This school will take in 10 sponsored orphans next year (2022) as government does not pay for pre-school education. Their teachers become the home based carers for those children.
