Working together towards a brighter future
Our society is faced with a multitude of challenges as a result of human ignorance and neglect. As well a natural threats which besiege us. But, for every one of these problems there is a solution.
This is why good people of TLC Projects are working tirelessly to solve these problems to build a better society for all who live in it.
TLC Projects are currently working in seven settlements where they have started to build up the lives of many families and children through feeding projects, educational programmes and social outreaches.
160 children from the 7 informal settlements joined together on this very special Youth Day event, this year the theme "We've got talent" was a huge success. Click here to read the Youth Day newsletter
With the children in school, uniforms organized, the Easter bunny back in hibernation and the children filled to the brim with chocolate, you will still find the TLC office a hive of activity. Click here to read our April 2012 Newsletter

TLC Outreach Project is a non profit, welfare organisation, registered with the Department of Social Development. Our purpose is to care for destitute youth at risk. (reg no: 021-126)
Since 1996 our community based project has been rehabilitating the children scattered on our streets because of abuse, addiction and extreme poverty many of whom have found their way to the streets in search of a safe haven. Over the past few years our project has extended the reach of our preventative program to help meet the needs of informal settlement children at risk. By networking with other organisations and our local police station together, we have united these diverse settlements together under a blanket of love and care.
We operate from a practically-centred perspective and work closely with the youth at risk in these cluster communities to offer relief and rehabilitation to the children often facing multifaceted levels of abuse.
Our main objective is the facilitation of the preventative programmes in the settlements. Educare play rooms and youth cabins have been erected by TLC to accommodate on site programmes. Day and night outreaches target children under the age of 18 living on the streets. The main goals of which, are to move them to a place of safety or re unite them with a family member. TLC's counselling arm lends itself to sexual, physical and emotional restoration. Employment and education opportunities are also provided where possible.
The foundations of our intervention policy are the programmes of family reunification and early intervention, cemented together by counselling and skills development as a means of social upliftment.
All settlements are fed on their allocated days and basic needs of shelter and clothing are also attended to.TLC engages these communities in regular education, motivation and social upliftment programmes and exciting events such as fun at the beach, various sporting activities and movie outings which are hosted by TLC throughout the year.
