“There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.” – Nelson Mandela

During South Africa’s apartheid era, racial segregation divided many people. Due to racial tensions many individuals were forced out of the cities into makeshift “townships.” These communities continue to have substandard housing, limited infrastructure and too few schools and job opportunities.

Children in these townships suffer from lack of physical and spiritual nourishment. Though the country’s post-apartheid laws now offer full equality for all people, prosperity was not redistributed when the social structure was reformed.

Many South Africans continue to heal from the injustices of the past and children and families continue to live in makeshift townships. Crime, violence, and poverty plague many of these areas.

By providing Christ-centered education and care to children we guide them toward positive life choices and most importantly, toward Christ.
