SERVICES

Since 1986, we have been developing a unique strategy that addresses the development of the communities we serve. We follow a holistic approach towards the development of people, while applying resources that ensure the successful and sustainable exit from the different programmes.

OUR FOCUS

Cities like Johannesburg, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Kempton Park face pervasive socio-economic and developmental challenges that need innovative intervention. These challenges include health, housing, unemployment, basic needs and spiritual well-being of vulnerable people. As a result, we focus on:


•    Poverty alleviation and spiritual and community enrichment
•    Education and skills development services
•    Professional health and social work services

We not only offer a wide spectrum of services that address poverty, but our programmes also assist vulnerable individuals to lead meaningful lives and empower them towards a sustainable livelihood.

Strategic partnerships and close collaboration with organisations in the private and public sectors, churches and caring individuals are imperative in response to these challenges.
