Jakaranda Children’s Home hosts their annual Christmas Light Festival. We decorate the 21 houses as well as the rest of the premises with millions of Christmas lights. The decorated children’s home is then opened to the public during the festive season. During the festival a big selection of entertainment is provided such as street musicians, singers, bands, laser shows and various other types of entertainment during the month.
THE PURPOSE OF THE JAKARANDA CHRISTMAS LIGHT FESTIVAL
To create awareness to the work that we do at the Jacaranda Children’s Home.
To emphasise the REAL CHRISTMAS MESSAGE to our children in the home and secondly to the public.
The funds raised are used to care for all our children, to successfully execute our planning for the year ahead and for the achievement of the objectives of each house individually at the children’s home.

Jakaranda Children’s Home started in 1987 and is situated in East Lynne, Pretoria. It is a non-profit organisation (NPO) that looks after the welfare of abused children. These children are removed from their parents and placed in our care by the South African children’s court due to: abandonment, neglect, emotional and physical abuse.
Our primary purpose is to provide the children with clothing, housing, schooling, food, security and stability. In addition, we aim to provide the children with the necessary therapy, life skills and emotional support that they need in order to become responsible adults and curb the cycle of abuse.
