AKC’s main priority is to shelter, care for and rehabilitate children between the ages of birth and 18 years old who have been subjected to trauma, abuse, molestation, poverty and neglect. AKC is one of this country’s oldest and largest childcare organisations; it has been running for 110 years.

Currently AKC runs 9 children’s homes and carries out 4 community care programs that provide food, pastoral care, remedial care, social services and skills development services. AKC also provides 3 educational programmes including the Emdeni Skills Development Centre, Impact School and Johanna Malan Early Childhood Development Centre.

It has been a long held belief of AKC that the children in its care need more than shelter and food, they need love, care, guidance and rehabilitation to lead sustainable lives that will empower them and allow them to be positive contributors to our society; thereby breaking the cycle of poverty, violence and abuse which will result in a healthier society. This belief has led Abraham Kriel Childcare into being a leader in the non-profit childcare industry. AKC is an innovative organization that constantly seeks to improve its services and programs by being sensitive to change in the social environment and to the needs of the children and families in need of assistance.

AKC’s services and programs are geared to empower and restore children’s dignity, it encourages the youth’s participation in our country’s socio-economic activities by supporting and participating in the government’s EPWP, it also promotes education through its early childhood development program and job creation through its skills development centre.
