Botshabelo is a registered Non-Profit Organisation with separate financial accounting and annual auditing. Botshabelo also has Public Benefit Organisation status which allows individuals and companies to receive a tax rebate for any donations given to Botshabelo.
B-BBEE points for Enterprise Development and Skills Development are also available through Botshabelo.
The organisation was born, 16 years ago, out of a burning passion for the community and its desperate need for a place of safety, support and resources.
Botshabelo began with members of Urban Life Church responding to the needs of our local communityand the call to be a ‘Place of Refuge’ for those hurting in our city. Botshabelo was established as a NGO in 2000 to facilitate this vision becoming a reality. The Babies Home was the first project to open its doors – with our first baby arriving in March 2000.
Over the years Botshabelo’s vision has been refined and put solidly as a stake in the ground – our vision is to impact the lives of children that need it most. Be it through education or residential care, we want to set children up with the best start in life. Right now, our 3 projects are achieving this vision!
