Learning through Literacy

At PCH, we have always been big on literacy! We encourage our children to read more not only to increase their vocabulary but studies show that Reading consistently strengthens connections in the brain, improves memory and concentration. Reading can also reduce stress levels and prevent age-related cognitive decline. As part of our programs, our Child Care team engage daily with reading activities adding fun and creativity into it.
We also continue with our Book Club and this group encourages each other to set aside time every day to pick up a book and read. They meet once a week to hold a book discussion . In the month of June the children were surprised with a  professional photoshoot from Achieve Careers highlighting the use of their donated Life Orientation (LO) manuals.


Our 135 year journey…Programs matter the most!
Development of a child is crucial. At a very young age we teach our children that they can be any one or anything they put their minds to. We have various programs that are designed to unleash every child’s potential since they are different individuals and are good at one or more activities.
Apart from special calendar holidays such as Worker’s Day, Youth day, Heritage days as well as Freedom Day that are commemorated by our children , they have over recent years participated in several programs that stimulate their Holistic Development:
Paddling sponsored by Duzi Canoe
1st Aid Training sponsored by St John Brigade
Soccer sponsored by Mountain Rise Astro
Amazing Souls Choir (PCH’s singing group)
Apart from the above mentioned our children also enjoy the opportunity to meet others from other Children’s Homes through Youth Forum meetings, Camps and Youth seminars and leadership programs.
Other programs involve Inkunzi Isematholeni “Unleashing the potential in a boy Child” and Vukuzithathe Africa. This clearly highlights the importance of exposing our children to different activities and letting them gain from a wealth of knowledge guiding their future decisions.

New Developments… Victor Daitz Foundation
The Victor Daitz Foundation was founded on the 04 July 1984 by an Entrepreneur and a humanitarian who was born in Johannesburg but spent some of his life in Durban. In 2018 we started by submitting our proposal to the Foundation for our children to receive a much needed Hall.
There has always been challenges with accommodating donors, visitors and running of programs since we have no onsite suitable covered space to accommodate all our children.  In recently months we were pleased to have received the Approval from the Foundation for the funding to erect our new hall onsite.
Out heartfelt appreciation goes to the Victor Daitz Foundation for
making this dream a reality! 
Mandela Day Celebration
