GANTSI: Window of Hope Centre is a Gantsi-based charitable organisation helping under-privileged people to acquire life skills. It was opened by Johannes and Kennetseng Kahuadi in 2005. Currently, it accommodates more than 90 street and vulnerable children, giving them support, care and counselling. The centre is like an extended family to the children.

Centre coordinator, Kennetseng Kahuadi, says Window of Hope makes sure that children who are old enough to attend school are taken to schools as far away as New Xade and Kuke where there are hostel facilities. “It’s very unfortunate that some did not go to these schools because there were no vacancies for them. The schools were fully booked,” said Kahuadi.

She said Window of Hope works closely with the Social and Community Development department to collect children when schools close and when they return for holidays. She explained that most of the children at the centre were rounded up from the streets while others just came in voluntarily. She said the children are fed two meals a day and return to their homes thereafter.
