Help the Rural Child

Our Shops

We have a total of seven stores based in and around the Cape Peninsula.  There are four clothing and general merchandise shops, one dedicated furniture shop and two bookshops. Each of our shops is run with one or two paid staff members and up to five volunteers in each shop at any one time. The more experienced volunteers train new volunteers that come in on a regular basis keen on supporting the good work and making a valuable contribution. As all our stock is donated, of very good quality and extremely well priced, it means a win-win situation for us and our customers.  We also have a Mobile Bookshop that goes from school to school offering good quality preloved books to learners, their parents and educators at excellent prices.  The Mobile Bookshop recently opened an online children’s bookshop offering the same quality books through their website.

The Help The Rural Child initiative has been kept alive thanks to your support. See details of our nearest stores below and get your hands on some amazing furniture, awesome clothing deals , as well as a wide variety of book genres to spark excitement in any reading enthusiast!
