The Open Circle is an NGO with PBO status and relies on fundraising and donations.
Only 40% of our Residents can afford to pay Fees required and subsidies received from Government are not sufficient to cover the significant costs of housing those with challenging behavior.
Deposits can be made straight into The Open Circle’s Bank account and can be declared by sending an Email to Helita Mankahla, Facility Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org Donations may be anonymous. NB. Section 18A Certificates can be provided for larger Donations.

Donation of new or used items

“Adopt” a Resident Project
Many of our residents do not have family contact. Therefore we are encouraging individuals or groups to support such individuals by spoiling them with a gift on their birthday, visiting them from time to time or even buying them something special for Christmas.
