The WHOLEy Child Foundation

Well being for the next generation

The concept for the WHOLEy Child Foundation began in April, 2016 with the goal to bring our yoga, mindfulness and wellbeing programs to compromised children throughout South Africa. The Foundation is the non-profit arm of Yoga4Kids and is a dream realised for company owner, Suzie Manson.

The Foundation has brought yoga to the Kids Haven Foundation in Benoni and to the Marie Kloppers Orphanage in Houghton.  We have also supported children in  Cape Town at the Marsh Memorial Children’s Home in Rondebosch, the Heatherdale Children’s Home in Athlone, and the Christine Revell
Children’s Home in Athlone. These children have been removed from their home situations for various reasons and are now in foster care at the aforementioned centres.

Currently due to Covid we have closed our outreach centres.  However we look forward to re-instating our work soon.  If you share the Suzie’s passion for outreach work and want  to help children heal through compassion and the powerful practice of yoga for children who need it the most, please contact us.

The Foundation currently runs weekly classes in Cape Town at the Marsh Memorial Children’s Home in Rondebosch, the Heatherdale Children’s Home in Athlone, and the Christine Revell
Children’s Home in Athlone. We are working to bring the Foundation’s presence to Johannesburg shortly and ultimately across the whole of South Africa.

The Foundation currently brings yoga to approximately 40 children (aged 4 – 12). These children have been removed from their home situations for various reasons and are now in foster care at the aforementioned centres. The yoga classes take place from 11:00 until 15:00 every Sunday and are run by volunteer Yoga4Kids teacher trainees and graduates.

If you share the Suzie’s passion – as well as that of her trainees and graduates – to help children heal through compassion and the powerful practice of yoga, please contact us.
