Located in the high veld Hho Hho region, Mhlosheni Welcome Place is a large mulit-purpose building in a rural mountainous community which serves as a Care Point. Homesteads there are spread out and children walk many miles to attend the local Government Primary School, Forbes Reef. By their torn clothing and perpetually hungry look, it was clear that the children of this community needed help.
The Welcome Place was named because OVCs are often not welcomed, and SOHO wished to emphasize that this building was for their benefit. A program for pre-school aged children is conducted there along with enrichment programs including tutoring, volunteer clinics, sewing, gardening and enrichment programs for girls. Recipients of food parcels gather there monthly to receive food aid
