Baphumelele Children's Home is a former CHOSA partner.
Baphumele was founded in 2001 as a refuge and place of safety for orphaned and other vulnerable children from the Cape Flats. The home is one of the first in the township of Khayelitsha, one of the largest in South Africa. It acts as an emergency place of safety for children who are lost or abandoned. Some children who are orphaned and cannot be placed in foster care stay at the home on a permanent basis.
