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 of course... homework to be completed.
Our Mission Field...During the apartheid government the African majority was extensively relocated from their existing homes to live in homelands or townships. Homelands were self-governing rural areas incorporating a preponderance 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.
