Kids Care and Support Trust is a community based organisation in Bronkhorstspruit Tshwane Region 7, it was founded in 2003 by Ms Schilling from St Joseph’s Care and Support Trust as a pilot drop in centre model for National Department of Social Development. Kids Care and Support Trust was under the mentorship of St Joseph’s for five years before the trust was registered as a Non-Profit Organisation (NPO) in December 2003 and started operating independently with its own registration number 030-736-NPO.
This community based project started due to the masses of children left orphaned or vulnerable due to the devastating effects of HIV/AIDS pandemic. Our drop in centre came in to give as much needed support to children and create environment for children to realise their full potential under the guidance of Child and Youth Workers. Also in partnering with other stakeholders/organisations such as the Department of Social Development, Kidsrights etc, KCST help children who are in need to access as much services as they need.
