The Banakekeleni Orphanage was established in 2003 and accommodates 15 children from the Alexandra community between the ages 3 to 15. The children are provided with school uniforms, three meals a day as well as lunch boxes. All children attend local schools. The orphanage provides both a safe haven as well as nurturing care for children who would otherwise find themselves homeless and uneducated. This centre does not receive any form of financial support from the government and relies only on support from businesses and the local community.
