Our garden, our joy

Winter in South Africa is a perfect time for crop farming. We all have that mentality of thinking that just because the weather is harsher, the crop will not grow. Yet there are certain fruits or vegs that one can plant during winter such as spinach, kale and green pepper, which our children engaged with.
We reported last month that the children had already started with their crop farming and it is these crucial stages where they are now doing everything to take care of them. Regular weeding and watering of plants will ensure that we get to enjoy a good harvest. 

The 135 years journey…
This month we are going to focus on our current status. PCH is made up of a Board of Trustees, Board of Directors, our Management team and staff component. Currently we are providing care to 74 Children who are placed in our care by the Children’s Court. Our Child Care program is in line with section 191 of Children’s Act 38 of 2005, and our core focus is on the holistic development of every child.
Everyone who is a part of our organization shares the same vision that Miss Mary Elizabeth Cooke had from the beginning: “Every child having a place called home.” These are definitely big shoes to fill but we are working tirelessly to make sure that her vision is carried through and her dedication was not in vain.

Child Protection – National Engagements
The month of May is significant in the Child Care Calendar. The month starts off with us acknowledging Child and Youth Care Week where we shown appreciation to our child and youth care workers who sacrifice long and unusual working hours to work in the personal life space of our children. In this month various programmes in the cottages focused on child protection issues and our Youth Forum members participated in Online Youth activities related to this same conversation. The last week of the month gives priority to Child Protection as a National concern.

The manager and her team were actively involved in several online events that highlight the plight of children in our country. We participated in the National Summit hosted by the Professional Board for Child and Youth Care Workers, joined the 2 day National Child Protection Forum sessions focusing on various relevant legislation that impacts on service delivery to children, and we decided to Partner with the Children’s Institute to pilot a Child Protection Training Manual that has been developed to support care workers in the Child Protection field.
