Lucky 13 for Brigette

Child and Youth Care Co-ordinator, Brigette Bond, came to The Johannesburg Children’s Home as a relief child care worker 13 years ago and she’s still helping our children to develop holistically.

“Building a relationship with each child is of the utmost importance to me,” she says. “I teach them that rights come with responsibilities. Every individual must be accountable for their actions in order to grow.”

Brigette is an integral part of the team that runs the individual development programme. Over the years, she’s learned that these work best if there’s a bit of fun built into the process. She especially enjoys helping our school-leavers prepare for their matric ball.

“It’s amazing to see the different characters of each child,” she says.
