This organisation met the desperate need to find a Home for Children where they would feel loved. Although our criteria is for girls who have been abused and children in crisis, we realise that it is important to prevent abuse by empowering young girls to become powerful, independent women. We do this through education, training, job placement and support. These activities will never supersede our desire to see these children become whole. We offer them a loving environment to tell their stories and regular counselling. They are welcomed into a safe home where the lies of their abusers are defused as we tell them daily that they are valuable, worthy and loved. We have a remedial school, as traumatised children struggle in a normal school environment. We offer the older girls training in: Basic reading, writing, maths and business skills Agriculture including greenhouse cultivation Chicken, sheep and rabbit rearing We have a Training Centre building where they have practical lessons in Hairdressing Catering, cooking and baking Craft Sewing After all our girls have successfully graduated, we look for placements and employment opportunities for them. We have girls that are employed or in training in: Hairdressing Beauty Therapy Working at a Fruit and Vegetable Market Various Restaurants and cafes Supermarkets Agricultural College The Sandra Jones Centre is a place where children find love and healing
