Place of Safety

Benjamin Generation is a registered non-profit organisation and PBO which was founded to care for
and protect orphaned, abused, neglected and vulnerable children that are typically placed with us by
Social Workers from the Department of Social Development and other organizations like Child
Welfare and the SAVF. Benjamin Generation is a safe haven for these children in their greatest time
of need.

Place of Safety

Benjamin Generation is managed/run by husband and wife team of Vanessa and Rowen Wortmann,
Rowen and Vanessa manage all aspects of this organisation. Rowen and Vanessa have a deep desire
to protect and care for the most vulnerable children in our society. At present we have the main
home which is full of mostly toddlers, a baby home that is quickly filling up with babies and a foster
home with boys in it. Benjamin Generation employs 12 staff all from the local community. The Place
of Safety consists of a large Victorian home where the toddlers and slightly older children live and
just recently we opened a new home just steps from the main home that is catering for babies from
new born till they can crawl. The children/babies that are placed in our care come from varying
backgrounds and we care for them for 1 day to up to a couple of years. Most of the children come
from the most awful situations, we give them the love and support that they need during this
horrifying time in their lives.
