To be a centre of excellence in the quality of giving
Bulamahlo Home & Day Care Centre (BHDCC) was opened in 1989 by Mrs Regina Sekgobela in Lifateng, Tembisa. It was first opened as a creche and day-care centre to provide education and child care services to the community of Tembisa. Then there started becoming a massive crisis in Tembisa with many abandoned children and abused children and Ma Regina responded to the call to become a foster mother and take care of children in this situation. The home grew because of her reputation for the wonderful care and compassion she showed to these abused and orphaned children.
Soon the demand of children being brought in by the Police and Social Workers meant that they had to apply to become a Non-Profit Organisation to raise more funds. In 2008 Bulamahlo was registered as a NPO. At the moment they have 20 children attending the creche for day care and 20 children requiring full time care. These children requiring full time care are from ages 2-16 and are a mixture of orphans, foster children, missing children and abused children placed in Mrs Sekgobela's care while awaiting trial.

Electricity bill of R96132.38 that Ma Regina owes to government. This massive bill is outstanding because of incorrect zoning of Bula-mahlo. Bula-mahlo is still zoned as a business from the days it was only a creche. Now that it is a Non Profit Organisation (NPO) it should be rezoned to reduce electricity costs. As a business the electricity and water bills are much more expensive. (Please see separate document for this bill as of 25/05/2016). We would love help to pay off this debt or help from lawyers to write off this debt
Solar energy to power their electricity consumption which is much more cost effective than current systems.
Help from lawyers to rezone Bula-mahlo as land used by an NPO and not a business. This will reduce further electricity and water costs.
Currently we only receive 6 social grants from the government out of the +- 20 children that we care for and we heavily rely on donations and Mrs. Sekgobela'spension for the daily running costs of the Orphanage. This is because Bula-mahlo Home and Day Care is only at the moment registered as a place of safety or a foster home. Our goal in the long run is to be established as an orphanage AKA a CYCC (Centre for Youth and Child Care). Long term goal is to register the organisation as a Public Benefit Organisation as well as registering it as a Section 18A Organisation.
