“Share your Love & Care with Underprivileged Children in Cape Town.”

The program runs daily – Monday to Friday from 8:30 am- 12:30 pm (with afternoons Optional): "The Project is situated in a Township called Masiphumelele, which is a 5 Minute drive from our Accommodation Base.  Visiting the Township every-day is a great way to explore the different cultures in South Africa and meet some wonderful people. You will get to experience how people with so little, appreciate so much.  We are assisting Many Orphaned Children in need, impacting their lives through the Love of Christ and adding HOPE AND LOVE into their lives. These children are in desperate need for parenting and caring. Many of the children were left alone to care for themselves or were being looked after by members of the community whilst their parents worked.  These children are from very poor backgrounds. We encourage the children and continue to introduce a good foundation into their lives to teach them Reading, Arts and Crafts, Bible study, Prayer, Worship and educational Programs.   Your help and assistance in running these Projects will be much appreciated.  We have a great need for volunteers to come and help at the child care centre.  We really hope that you can Join us. This project runs all year round except: from the 20th December until the 5th January.
