Baphumelele Children’s Home

Baphumelele Children’s Home and Educare Centre in Khayelitsha were founded by Rosalie Mashale. Today there is an established community crèche (preschool) caring for roughly 230 children aged three months to six years, and the children’s home is a place of safety for abandoned, abused, neglected or orphaned children, most of whom are either infected with or affected by HIV/Aids.
