Manenberg Aftercare Centre - Our Children

The project was initiated during the soccer world cup 2010 by Father Wim Lindeque, at that time Catholic priest in Manenberg, Ricardo Cupido, now Centre Manager, and a couple of committed persons, to help the children who did not receive their school meals during the soccer-related school holidays.

Rapidly it become clear that there was an urgent need to aid the mental and social development of the children. Groups for sport, music, dancing and homework support and a playroom for the little ones were established. For many of the children it is the only place where they get warmth, love and support. More than 200 children are enrolled in the project. It is wonderful to see the children grow and be full of hope.
