100 years ago, a handful of dedicated Dominican nuns employed their bare hands and generous hearts to build Girls & Boys Town - Tongaat campus; buildings that have been home and sanctuary to the many thousands of vulnerable youth that Girls and Boys Town have helped to transition to bright and meaningful lives.
But while our purpose is to equip young people with the strength and resolve to shine despite the challenges the world has burdened them with, shines in us brightly still; a century of wear and tear has worn our simple walls away.
Today, the Tongaat campus buildings stand condemned and now 61 years of work that has served to build the strong foundations of so many young may fail too. Not if we can help it.
Together with the generous help of Boogertman +Partners and other firms who have already rallied to help our cause, have found an ingenious way to not only preserve Kwa Zulu Natal history but to serve the future generations of children who so desperately depend on our strong grounding to survive and thrive also.
