Our Work

About Us

Summerhill House is a registered non-profit organisation with the sole purpose of providing holistic care for vulnerable, orphaned, and abandoned children through our children’s home (Village) and Community initiatives.

Summerhill lies 40-minutes from King Shaka Airport on the Dolphin Coast of KZN, SA. It is situated in an underprivileged community called Etete. which is home to a diverse group of people with roughly 11,000 residents.

Summerhill is unique in our mandate because instead of operating solely as a community outreach or as a children’s home – we do both.

We work in and with our community, offering services and initiatives to uplift the lives of the children and their families. AND we build homes (not just houses), within our Village. We do this by creating family-centric living environments. Each home has a housemother, who lovingly raises up 6 children, as her own.

Our hope is that these children will be future game-changers and contributors to our nation.
