Abraham Kriel Child and Youth Care Centre

Who is AK Potch?

Helping a child reach their full potential is our No 1 passion at Abraham Kriel. We strive to provide children who have endured the ugly side of life with the best care possible and the leaps and bounds of improvement excite us as we witness the incredible transformation taking place right before our eyes on a daily basis.

We provide specialized residential care for children who are removed from dangerous and damaging situations by the Children’s Court. These children are in our care 24/7 and we are responsible for their mental, physical and emotional well-being as well as their education and health. In the ideal world all children should be with their families but the reality is that we have to think long term since the majority of our kids remain with us throughout their school careers.
