DERDEPOORT

CMR Derdepoort Centre of Hope, supplies a one-stop service to all our clients.

We deliver services through the following programmes.

  • Poverty alleviation and community development.

  • Child protection.

The Poverty alleviation program includes the following projects:

  • Feeding scheme and clothing project.

  • Pre-School Development project.

  • Job creation project.

Feeding scheme and clothing project:

We have a feeding scheme where 110 registered families with a very low income are receiving monthly basic food packets.
Clothes store: We supplied families with clothes and they can purchase clothes at very low prices.

Pre-School development project:

The day-care centre moved to new premises where 20 underprivileged toddlers between the age
of 3 and 6 years can learn and play every day. They are very lucky to have a trained pre-school
teacher and one teacher is busy with her training.
The toddlers receive two balanced meals per day and some of them receive occupational therapy.

The majority of this children are in high-risk family situations and the social worker can
therefore monitor and assess the children on a continual basis.
It’s a very sensible way in keeping children in their families, and ensuring that the children are safe.

Job creation project:

Job creation project every Wednesday morning for underprivileged mothers.

Family conservation:

In this program, we focus to keep children within their families. Service delivery is achieved through assessing, counselling and therapy to individuals as well as in family and group context.
Parents are empowered through an extensive group program of training and therapy.

Child Protection:

In this program, we focus on the protection of children. When children’s welfare is in danger (from e.g. physical abuse, molestation or emotional abuse),
they are removed through the Child Protection Act and placed in alternative care, e.g. foster care, children’s home or industrial schools.

Foster families receive continuous support and guidance.
Biological parents are involved in family reunification services.

  • 13 October 2013 – Opening of new premises of the Pre-School Development Centre.
