Winning the lottery

The children of St. Joseph CYCC are feeling very special: The National Lotteries Commission (NLC) has awarded our childrens home a big donation.

St. Joseph CYCC has donors around the world and at home – without their contributions we wouldn’t be able do our daily work. Just recently, one of the biggest South African organizations granted our NGO a big donation. We had applied for funds from the National Lottery as early as 2015; four years later we received a big donation from the National Lotteries Commission (NLC). With the help of the six-figure grant, we were able to buy a small car. This is a real gamechanger for our staff, as it makes it easier to meet court dates in far off locations and do family visits on a regular basis. We received office tables and chairs for our board room, improving our working environment and making events with guests and parents possible. Last but not least, we bought a set of school uniforms. “We are humbled and say ‘Siyabonga and Thank you’ to our friends at the NLC”, says Center Manager Sr. Assumpta Hadebe. “A big donation like this one helps to make St. Joseph CYCC a better place.”
