A Home away from Home

The children of Aurora are blessed to have two places they call home – one with their family in Ivory Park, and one at school in Bapsfontein. Each week they board in the homely hostel. Life is a happy hum of activities between morning and evening devotions with farm animals to be fed, vegetable gardens to be tended, duties to be done and homework to be completed.


God is Good!
I came to Aurora as a young child in 1999, with big dreams, and now I’m living my dream. Thank you Aurora for guiding me spiritually’ academically and believing that I am special.

New Tractor and implements

Most of Aurora’s land has not been utilized, by using the land this will assist Aurora to be more self-sustainable and the cost purchasing food will reduce as the vegetable garden and lands start producing more.

Prayer Needs

The reality of our children is that when they are not at school, they live in very unsafe conditions. Every Imaginable vice is at their disposal. Culturally they are often disregarded, neglected and left on their own. They can be seen as objects for someone else's pleasure. For us as staff, our children's spiritual lives are the most important thing that we want to groom. We are intentional about this. Sometimes we are discouraged and even scared knowing that they are exposed to so much in their young lives. Read more to pray for some specifics

Ivory Park

Our missionfield – During the apartheid government, the African majority was extensively relocated from their existing homes to live in either homelands or townships. Homelands were self-governing rural areas incorporating a preponderance of one African culture. Townships were large settlements situated a distance away from major cities where African people were accommodated in largely informal structures. These townships still exist today and include Soweto south of Johannesburg from where the ANC struggle took place, as well as Ivory Park north of Johannesburg where the Aurora children live.
