More About Them
Beautiful Gate South Africa is an interdenominational Christian organisation providing care and support to vulnerable children and families. We believe that the best place for each child is within a family, and that the best way to support families is to enable their community to provide support.
In South Africa, our community based ministry is situated on the outskirts of Cape Town, in the informal area of Lower Crossroads. Here we aim to restore the capacity of the community and of families to care for their children or, where this is not possible, to find alternative families.
In this regard Beautiful Gate has emerged as a trustworthy partner to the local community and to other NGO’s as well as government in addressing issues of HIV/AIDS and its impact on children, families and the community.
We are a registered not for profit organisation in South Africa, 005086 NPO and a public benefits organisation, PBO No. 130002944.

Community Support - This concentrates on all the activities that encompass family support. It includes:
Paediatric HIV clinic – Beautiful Gate works in partnership with the local Provincial clinic as well as other partners to provide a paediatric HIV clinic service to the families and children of the Crossroads area.
Children’s Home – Where families are unable to stay together, we provide up to 35 safe places for children needing a safe and loving home before being returned to their family or being fostered. Psycho-social and spiritual support is provided for the children.
Family Re-unification – Services ensure that families are located and re-connected to their children. The parents or extended family is then supported to be re-unified with the child. Foster care placement is also done.
Activity Centre – The activity centre plays a critical role in child development especially as most of our children require special help including remedial teaching. A team of Child Development Workers help children to grow mentally, spiritually and intellectually, with various activities. Some of the activities include reading & writing, craft and creative work, games and lifeskills, singing and dance.
Holiday Clubs – During the holidays we run fun programmes to ensure children get lots of exercise, enjoy their holiday and learn some life-skills along the way..
