The 40 teenage girls who call St George’s Home for Girls their home have been dreaming about a new lick of paint for years. During March their dreams will come true one hundred fold. MySchool and Woolworths will be sponsoring an Extreme Makeover of the entire orphanage. Volunteers from across the Cape are invited to participate and make this project a great success.
The Woolworths Food group, through their Youth Day promotion of June 2009, has generously raised additional funds in benefit of the MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet fundraising organisation which they support. These funds will now to be use for this project to make a meaningful, lasting and sustainable difference within the Wynberg community.
St George’s Home for Girls is currently the only residential care facility in the Wynberg District which provides for children who are abused, abandoned, neglected and orphaned. Children from failed foster placements and those with behavioural problems are also cared for.
