Imvelo Experience

During the day, we’ll also be launching our Imvelo Experience. This is the social enterprize arm of the organisation, designed to create sustainable funding by extending our reach to other markets, such as catering and hospitality. Lucky draws for Imvelo hampers and surprise giveaways will also take place.

Annette Brokensha, Director of the Home said, “The Johannesburg Children’s Home is a testament
to the goodwill of South Africans and their profound generosity to support children in need of care.
We feel honoured to have played a part in caring for orphans and vulnerable children and restoring
hope to desperate children and to continue the legacy of care.

The Children’s Home has had to reinvent itself to make ends meet time and again, and every time there
has been a groundswell of support from the South African community. We truly know what it is like
to be together in hard times and good times. We look forward to celebrating with all our supporters.”
