TLC is a fun-loving, hard-working, family-focused organisation that cares for 32 tiny babies under the age of 3 years upon admission. There are also 36 children between the ages of 3 and 24 years living at TLC on a permanent basis. A major portion of TLC’s work (together with social workers and the department of social services) is to find permanent families for the tiny babies, preferably reunited with their family. If this is unsuccessful then we try to get them placed in local foster or adoptive care and if that is not possible, we petition the authorities to get them placed in permanent families overseas. We aim to have these babies placed into permanent families as soon as reasonably possible.
We rely heavily on volunteers to support the Mamas (employee caregivers) in our nursery and have had over 1000 volunteers serve with us since our founding in 1993
