eGoshen Kids Club is located in Elandshoek, a small rural community where many unemployed and seasonal workers are settled, situated near our Church Unlimited Kaapschehoop location. What is unique about our partnership with eGoshen is that this centre is led by a local church called Uniting Reformed Church Elandshoek.
