LITTLE EDEN wishes to acknowledge Newsclip Media Monitoring for their generous support of the Society since 2003, by providing our organisation with pro-bono services. The services that are being rendered to us on a regular basis continue to be of exceptional value to LITTLE EDEN as it enables us to continuously monitor the effectiveness of our marketing and public relations campaigns throughout the year.


LITTLE EDEN wishes to thank the National Lotteries Commission for the continued support we have received over the years. This has made a visible difference to the service we provide and has added value to the lives of our special children with intellectual disabilities. The continued generosity of special donors like the NLC will ensure that our precious residents will continue to live the life they truly deserve, despite the threatening funding landscape that we currently face.

Birthdays should be special

With a ‘family’ of 300 children and adults at LITTLE EDEN – chances are someone here is having a birthday today!

That means a big celebration! A party with cake and a brightly wrapped gift, a special hat for the birthday girl or boy to wear, and everyone singing ‘Happy Birthday’.

Because – while some people think that the birth of a child with disabilities is a tragic mistake – we believe that these special children have as much right as anyone else to live ... to laugh ... and to be loved.

But sadly, many of our children have been abandoned. They have no moms and dads, grannies, aunties and uncles to spoil them on their birthday. They have only us – and caring people like you – to make them feel special.

When you think that many of our children and adults with profound intellectual disability cannot speak or walk or even hold a spoon – you’ll understand how much it means to them to get a little extra attention on their special day.donate

That’s why we hope you can find it in your heart to send a contribution to LITTLE EDEN today. Your kindness will sponsor a birthday party or gift for one of our special children – and help us provide them with love and care every day of the year.

And when you next celebrate your own birthday – your most heartwarming gift will surely be the knowledge that you shared the spirit of the day with a child affected by severe disabilities.

If you’re celebrating your 50th next year ... the same year as LITTLE EDEN ... please let us know. We would love to share our birthday with you in some way!
