The Langrug Children

The Langrug Childhood Development Trust


David Molorane, one of the first trustees of our Trust and now living in the Eastern Cape, an official qualified South African Tour Guide and Chauffeur, started a small African restaurant, called Batho's Place, together with his wife Lebo in March 2011 in a shack next to their home in Langrug. Besides running this restaurant David was also involved in raising money and organising regular Soup Kitchens for the very poor children and elderly people in his township. With financial support from tourists and locals Batho's Place became "a place to be" and soon the little shack was too small to accommodate everybody.

With the help of many sponsors a new building could be built, much bigger than the old one with a roof terras overlooking the township. It is the multifunctional home of the population for special events, meetings and so on.
