Child & Youth Care Centre

Siyakatala CYCC is a registered centre with the Dept of Social Development and consists of Youthspace for boys (sponsored by Siemens Ltd) and Canary House for Girls. The children in our care are cared for using our five pronged service model of Therapeutic, Developmental, Caring, Recreational and Outreach.

Maranatha Care Centre

We can accommodate up to 20 adults/ families that are in need of care and support. They assist us by volunteering their services as drivers, cook, cleaners, gardeners, maintenance and admin in support of the programmes of Maranatha. We do not receive any funding from the state or for our work with the adults and therefore rely on the kindness of companies and private individuals for donations. We Thank You.

Volunteering Your Service

If you want to make a difference in the lives of people you can volunteer your services for an hour a month, a week, a day just as your programme allows. We appreciate any amount of time a volunteer can give. We have volunteers from PE and internationally. You can volunteer for education, sports, crafts, music and recreational activities. .
