Help The Rural Child is a chain of retail shops that form part of the Goedgedacht Trust (www.goedgedacht.org). We sell donated goods, such as clothing, books, furniture, CDs, DVDs, toys, games, sports equipment and almost anything else that you can think of. We have five clothing shops in Cape Town, Sea Point, Kuils River, Mowbray and Retreat, one dedicated furniture shop in Retreat and two bookshops situated in Mowbray and Kirstenhof.
To meet the challenges faced by rural communities, the Trust developed and implemented a creative and sustainable flagship, Path Onto Prosperity (POP) Program, catering to the needs of children at different stages of their lives, starting with the first 1 000 days until adulthood, which include: early childhood development and care – First Thousand Days (FTD), afterschool care, leadership academy, community gardens.
