Cause Profile

Abraham Kriel Childcare (AKC) is a non-profit childcare organisation based in Johannesburg whose passion is to ensure the optimal development of traumatised children in need of care.  AKC provides residential care and community care around Gauteng and its main priority is to shelter, care for and rehabilitate children between the ages of birth and 18 years old who have been subjected to trauma, abuse, molestation, poverty and neglect.

Currently AKC runs 9 children’s homes (2 campuses and 7 satellite homes) and carries out 4 community care programs that provide food, pastoral care, remedial care, social services and skills development services. AKC also provides 3 educational programmes including the Emdeni Skills Development Centre, Impact School and Johanna Malan Early Childhood Development Centre. All these programmes can be presented in great detail should you be interested to know more.

It has been a long held belief of AKC that the children in its care need more than shelter and food, they need love, care, guidance and rehabilitation to lead sustainable lives that will empower them and allow them to be positive contributors to our society; thereby breaking the cycle of poverty, violence and abuse which will result in a healthier society. AKC constantly seeks to improve its services and programs by being sensitive to change in the social environment and to the needs of the children and families in need of assistance.

Welcome to a place where you can make a difference in the life of a child in need. Please read on and see what difference your contribution can make to the lives of children and towards the future of the world that we live in.
