St. Luigi Scrosoppi Sorgsentrum | Care Centre

29 Wolf Rd, Bridgeton, Oudtshoorn, 6620, South Africa

Our Vision

The Scrosoppi Sorgsentrum™ was established in 2006 to provide a safe haven and place of assistance for the children and youth of the township who live and grow up in an environment where poverty, malnutrition, dysfunctional family life, crime, violence, gangsterism, alcohol and drug abuse and juvenile delinquency are prevalent and the spectre of AIDS a growing reality.

Our History

In 2005 we identified a piece of ground in the township – a wasteland which was used as an informal dumping terrain, a dangerous place where the gangs conducted their criminal activities and where murders and rapes took place. There was no infrastructure of any kind. The Oratorians bought an old factory adjacent to this piece of ground and moved in and started with the development of the land. In 2007 the development of the Scrosoppi Sorgsentrum™ was formally started.

Our Mission

We aim to assist them in whatever practical way we can and address whatever their particular needs are in order for them to break free from the bondage of their circumstances, finish school, live healthy lives, realize their potential and acquire the necessary skills to become responsible, productive adults who will contribute in a positive way to the development of our society.
