You are looking at a colorful wall painted with motives like Mickey Mouse and giraffes when you are walking on a busy street in Mamelodi. There is loud honking from the cabs, which never seems to stop and you hear noise from playing children behind colorful grids at certain times of day.
On the campus of Jesus Loves Ministries there is a sewing school, the Bethel Ashram children’s home for boys, and the St. Pauls School for nursery up to seventh grade. In this place, you are mainly working with the 15 boys from the children’s home that you grow fond of quickly.
In the children’s home “Norberto Haase” in Alem there are about 60 children. They live together in their homes in family groups of 12 boys and girls. In the mornings, we help the housemothers. After lunch and the siesta break, we are usually with the children in the homes.
