Event Description


Ubuntu Help-Portrait shoot for children and adults at New Beginnings Care Centre in Boksburg.

New Beginnings Care Centre is a shelter that provides housing and feeding for the destitute, homeless, abused woman and children, recovering substance abusers, street children, prostitutes, parolees and others in recovery from various addictions.

The centre is a sanctuary for the destitute that aims to keep the moral of these people in high spirits through Bible study, prayer groups, youth activities, various outings and excursions. It is a registered public benefit organisation and non profit organisation.

Special Notes for Volunteers:

  1. The centre is based in an old prison with other buildings added to it. It is very crowded and so it is likely that some of the volunteers will have to shoot outdoor. A reflector may be very useful for that so please bring yours if you have one.
  2. As many of the people there are in recovery from various addictions, we need to be especially sensitive to and expect that some may not wish to have their photo taken.


Photogs: up to 20


Portraits: +/-1,300 children and adults

“Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don't.” 

― Steve Maraboli

“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” 

― Maya Angelou

“Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realise there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”

- Lao Tzu

“How would your life be different if…You walked away from gossip and verbal defamation? Let today be the day…You speak only the good you know of other people and encourage others to do the same.”
