The centre located in in Boundary Road, Kliptown is a safe haven in the informal settlement which is opened to everyone living around kliptown; who are willing to volunteer with helping the children in the centre and other community members. Little Rose Centre caters for 84 children, and 18 of those children live on the facilities. The Centre doubles as a Creche and a home. This centre has no government funding, they rely on donations and the children that pay creche fees are only 30 of 84 children pay fees. The children from the home attend schools around Soweto because there are no schools in around Kliptown that teacher in their home language. The challenges which children face are the language. Kliptown is a predominantly coloured area and they speak Afrikaans and English and the other school speak IsiZulu, seSotho and so forth, the reason why they have to attend school far from the area.
