The Little Eden Society, supporting children and adults with physical and mental disabilities is hosting a series of events to raise funds for the remainder of the year; first up, a golf day!


Edenvale, South Africa (13 September 2023) – In order to keep both of Little Eden Society’s homes operational, the team hosts many events to raise funds. Earlier this year they challenged CEOs to spend a day in a wheelchair; now they are planning the annual golf day, a Christmas Market and a Christmas concert.

Little Eden is a registered non-profit organisation providing life-long care to 300 children and adults with profound intellectual disabilities in two custom-designed residential facilities. They have the Domitilla and Danny Hyams Home in Edenvale, and the Elvira Rota Village, in Bapsfontein.

Many of the residents have an average age of 27 years old but intellectually, they are around one year old. Carers help to feed, carry, change and bathe them. Many of the other residents are able to care for themselves in the way of feeding themselves, brushing their teeth, dressing and using the toilet.

Every group is managed according to their personal abilities and behaviour. Teams always keep them comfortable and safe.

To ensure each resident gets the best care, fundraising is vital. This coming November will be the organisation’s annual golf day.

“Mark your calendars for Thursday, 2 November 2023, and join LITTLE EDEN Society at the Modderfontein Golf Club for a day of golf, camaraderie, and the chance to make a lasting difference in the lives of individuals living with profound intellectual disability. 

Golf enthusiasts and community members are invited to participate in this exciting event, which not only offers the promise of an exceptional day on the greens but also the chance to win a R100,000 prize if they sink a hole-in-one on the 9th hole!

The LITTLE EDEN Golf Day is more than just a sporting event; it serves as a vital cornerstone for raising critical funds that directly support the organisation’s mission of providing lifelong care and support to 300 children and adults living with intellectual disability. Additionally, this event provides a unique platform for networking, building valuable community relationships, and promoting social responsibility within the community.”
