Care & protection of vulnerable babies & children

The Almond Tree exists to provide a loving family environment where children can heal and grow. We offer a safe and loving home environment.

Training and Development

Training and Development

In this work, people make all the difference. We pride ourselves in recruiting excellent staff. We motivate and educate our staff, who in turn contribute to the well-being and growth of The Almond Tree.



We offer educational programmes that facilitate learning and equip children with knowledge, skills, values, morals, beliefs and good habits. To establish firm foundations through early childhood development programmes, primary and vocational programmes.


Social Services

We render comprehensive social services to promote the best interest of all children in our care, and we strive to remain consistent with the relevant child protection statutes and policies in South Africa.
