SAN SALVADOR'S PURPOSE

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a safe, respectful, loving home for intellectually handicapped adult women at San Salvador in a stimulating environment, where the dignity and self-worth of individuals affected by mental and intellectual disabilities can be upheld and where they can be developed to their full potential.

Our Vision

San Salvador through all its programmes and services are committed to the development of adults with intellectual disabilities towards self-actualization and to provide them with an opportunity to live a meaningful life, with support and guidance.

ABOUT OUR HOME

San Salvador celebrated its 80th year of existence in 2016. Initially founded by the Order of Dominican Sisters (Congregation of St. Catharine of Siena of King William’s Town) as a care facility for children with intellectual disabilities, it has over the years evolved and developed into a multi-professional registered non-profit organization which provides holistic services and programmes to its beneficiaries and the community as a whole.

OUR HISTORY

Back in the early 1930’s a need in the community was recognised to assist families with intellectually challenged family members

In response to this need,   Mother General Augustine Geisel, from the Order of Dominican Sisters (Congregation of St. Catharine of Siena of King William’s Town), decided to establish a residential care facility back in 1936.

OUR FUTURE

Although the future is unpredictable, we would like to develop an organisation that is dynamic, financially sustainable and able to meet the diverse needs of our future generations. We aim to ensure that we will be able to provide a safe and secure future for all our current and future beneficiaries, in an environment that is homely, supportive and encouraging for another 80 years and more.

HELP US TO MAINTAIN OUR HOME

We are always appreciative of donations big and small.
