Charity description

Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate. The Garden Route Children's Trust, or GRCT for short, is a UK-based charity which is concerned with the welfare of children living on the Garden Route in South Africa.

The aim of the GRCT is to alleviate poverty amongst children in South Africa through the provision of food and education. Nourishing the bodies and minds of children in need gives them a good, healthy foundation on which to build, and helps them to learn to look after themselves and their families.
Our work is focused in three main areas:
Our principal beneficiary is The E’Pap Feeding Project which is currently helping to feed more than 4000 children in underprivileged areas around the Garden Route. The children receive a daily meal of E’Pap, a pre-cooked blend of maize, soya, vitamins and minerals.
We also send funding to the Missionvale Care Centre where we support the feeding of more than 200 malnourished children. The Centre is situated near Port Elizabeth in an informal shackland development of 100,000 people where the unemployment rate is estimated at 70% and the HIV/AIDS infection rate at 60%.
Please donate to support our cause.
