South Africa is one of the societies in the World that sees its future through its children’s and thus, has declared the week of May 26 to 1 June as Child Protection Week. The Greater Benoni Child Welfare cares about the future leaders (children) of this country and will be hosting a prayer day on Wednesday 21 May 2014 at Daveyton Marivati Community hall from 09:00 to 13:00.This is the event ahead of the National Child Protection Week. Our prayers will be dedicated with hopes, beliefs and trust to our Lord the Creator, that the violence namely, abuse, neglect, rape, abandonment , child labour and of course the spreading of orphanage due to loss of parents in societies and homes,will be reduced and our children will live in a better and safer environment .
As a result The Greater Benoni Child Welfare invites all members of society around Benoni, Daveyton and Etwatwa area to join us either physically by attending our service or spiritually by joining us in prayers where ever they are in the fight against the various mentioned circumstances which are threatening the future “the children” of our country.

Tribute to Colin House by Lerato Mohvala

(2003/2004 resident)

Oh Colin House, How great you are

You are the best, House of dynamites

You are not just Colin’s House

But you are a protector

You are a shadow, Shelter keeping children warm

You are like a Mother, Accepting any kind of children

House of people who have bright futures

Heroes of tomorrow

Stars and Presidents are living in you

You are a little place

But doing great for people

Help is part of your assistance

Wanting people to have the best

It’s in you, Oh Colin House, A strong hero

Destroying all abusers out there

Abusers who deserve to be punished

You take children

And put them under your safe house

Which is a place of safety

You are not working alone

God is there and workers who are your assistants are

in your place
