Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Kidz Klub

The Saturday “Kidz Klub” is our main gathering and serves as a gateway to our other programs. The exciting mix of games, singing, prizes, puppets, and Bible teaching attracts hundreds of children, often providing our first contact with a child.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Home Visits are our foundation for building long-term relationships with the children. Each child involved in our program is visited by one of our caring adult staff every week, giving us the opportunity to assess basic needs and provide spiritual counsel and prayer.

Population(s) Served
Families

The Creche Project is designed to provide early childhood development from birth to six-years-old, as well as Christian training and resources for our network of daycares in the slums.

Population(s) Served
Infants and toddlers

The choir is a chance for the children to express themselves to God and to their world through music, song, and dance. The choir organizes a concert tour to the United States every other year. Contact us if you are interested in hosting the choir.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Our Feeding Program provides weekly food parcels to dozens of households struggling in desperate poverty.

Population(s) Served
Families

We provide School Fees Assistance to those children who cannot afford to attend school. Each child who is sponsored also receives assistance in attaining a birth certificate and immunizations (if needed), a full uniform, shoes, backpack, and school supplies.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To unlock the future of Africa by empowering children to be
ambassadors of change in their families, schools and communities

Mentoring Relationships through various programming including: Weekly home visits, Weekly Kidz Klub, Key of Hope Choir, Feeding program with monthly food parcels to the neediest in the community, school assistance fees, family rights program assistance for families getting grants and legal documents (ex. birth certificates), Creche program to provide help with birth to six years, Cross training which is various sports programs for elementary age students, Hope Academy provides tutoring, and more.

We have staff located in Durban who run these programs and visit these families weekly.

We are seeing students graduate from High School and able to attend higher education programs. As a result, we keep adding programs to our list so that as students grow and age we still provide support for them. We now have a Young Adult program to continue to assist the students through the next stage in life. And we will continue to add programs, as we are able, to provide the support needed.
