GreenSleve thumb With a vision to save the lives of millions of children without parents, Greensleeves gives hope with a loving home, education and life skills.

There are millions of children in South Africa who grow up without parents, and Greensleeves Children’s Trust aims to give them a home, education and a future.  Housing 40 children and teaching around 50 on site, Greensleeves was started by one woman with a vision to save and restore the lives of orphaned and vulnerable children. 


Johan* was 14 when he arrived at Greensleeves four years ago, after being removed from his family for safety reasons. Unable to read or write, he is now in Grade 8 at a local high school and achieved 91% in Maths. Now confident in reading and writing, he is now a motivated young man who is ready to achieve and realise his full potential. 

Johan is just one of the vulnerable children at Greensleeves, where MySchool funds are vital to the existence of their on-site school. Providing excellent education and crucial life skills from Grade R to 7, Greensleeves is a as a non-profit organisation that received no government funding, and relies entirely on the generosity of individuals, businesses and MySchool supporters. 

The school gives all its children, who often have never attended school before, a chance to catch up on basic skills. As they develop in confidence and ability to succeed, they move to local high schools with a strong work ethic and big ambitions. For these children, these opportunities and skills let them dream big and shape their own futures. 


Johan’s story is just one out of our 40 children, who without the work of Greensleeves Children’s Trust their futures would never look to bright. 

We would like to say a huge thank you to all those who continue to support us today. Our children would not have a future without you!
