There is a place of hope just outside the sleepy town of Barberton. It is where a handful of children have come to find solace, acceptance and some form of normality. Ten smiling faces greet you as you walk up to the sandpit, each one of them hoping for a chance to have their picture taken. A bright chorus of “hallo’s” fill the air and soon you are inundated with heartfelt hugs as little arms are flung around you and tightly squeezed. These smiles belong to possibly the most loving souls you will ever meet. They are children, brought here by social services or abandoned by parents who could not take care of them  dequately. But here is not an institution. Here, is a home, a safe haven, a place of nurturing. Here, is Jinda.

Jinda Child Care was started by Peter and Wilma Bakker a few years back when they realised a dire need existed within the community to have a place where, otherwise destitute, children will be afforded a chance at life. Currently the centre, situated on the Bakker’s farm near Prison Farm outside Barberton, houses eighteen children ranging in age from just two year to 18 years old. Despite limited resources, they have managed to accommodate the needs of these little ones, both in education and love. They have a fully equipped school with basic facilities to house and care for the children during the day and homes for the children where they have a family environment of sorts to return to after school.

With a scholarship program in place, headed by supporters in Holland, the children are able to attend good schools which affords them a better future.
