The Emerald Hill Children’s Home, founded in 1914 by the Dominican Sisters, shelters up to 100 children who have been orphaned, abandoned or abused. With the HIV/AIDS pandemic continuing to contribute to the breakdown of family structures there is an ever-increasing need to care for these children.
The Emerald Hill School for the Deaf has over 300 pupils, many of whom are from disadvantaged backgrounds. It is comparatively recently that the school began to enrol a number of pupils without a hearing disability as they have found that it greatly helps the deaf children with their communication skills and encourages them to have the confidence to interact with the outside world.
