All children have the basic rights under our constitution to safety and security, adequate nutrition, healthcare, quality education, and especially love and support in becoming happy and productive members of society. For a fortunate few living in Alexandra Township (Alex), the Leratong Joy for One Foundation works tirelessly to make this a reality.
For many children living in Alex, these basic rights remain an unattainable dream. Our group of dedicated individuals, headed by the formidable Peggy Chauke, formed the Leratong Joy for One Foundation (NPO) in 1990 to address this desperate need, one child at a time. We aim to help as many poor and neglected orphans and child headed families as funding and resources allow. Our vision has always remained to treat each child as an individual, catering to each child’s specific situation and challenges, encapsulated in the name we chose -“Leratong Joy for One Foundation”.
