It gives me pleasure to present a report on St. Philomena’s Childrens Home.

It has been a challenging but awesome five months for me at St Philomena’s getting to know each child with their different personalities and character has been a fulfillng experience. It is indeed a blessing to try and mould each unique individual into a wholesome being.

Currently we have 29 girls in our care, they are housed in different sections viz: Bethany, which houses 9 girls from the ages of 6 – 12; Eden, housing 13 girls from the age of 13 – 18 and Galilee which houses the after care program, girls age from 18 to 21. The aftercare programme is an initiative of St Philomena’s which runs for a two year period. The main objective if the programme is to encourage and foster independent living amongst the girls.

We have exciting programmes and outings planned for the girls in the months to come and hope to fulfill each and every item and outing listed. Our children are also allowed on their individual school excursions. We have been on a few outings to the parks, the movies and visiting other homes. A group of our girls belongs to the NACCW youth forum, where they attend sessions on a monthly basis. Two of our older girls attend the Kip McGrath Centre at westville, In a Cell C bring a girl child to work initiative. They fared very well at the centre and have been invited over again. We have also encouraged the centre to assist our girls with tuition in Mahts and English.
