Building A Future Today !

Oosterland Background

Oosterland Youth Centre is situated in Despatch, South Africa, since 1980, and accommodates 120 children placed in our care by the Children’s Court. The main target group is all children in need of care, including destitute, orphaned, abused, and neglected. Oosterland is serving the children of Eastern Cape, irrespective of race, culture, gender, linguistic or religious heritage. Our 120 children are representative of all race groups. Most of the children are from Despatch, Uitenhage, Port Elizabeth and even as far as Cape Town and Pretoria.

Oosterland must submit a 2 year plan for each child to the Department of Welfare to specify which services would be rendered to facilitate family re-unification.
