Many of you may have seen our new slogan floating around the social media realms and wondered what the inspiration behind it is. "Move Beyond Charity" is our way of expressing what the core beliefs behind our organisation are. We believe that extreme poverty can end, that mindsets can be changed, and that love is a necessity.

It’s a one night commitment a week...but it could change a life for eternity.

Offered a Lifeline : The Story of Sakkie

Every day was a struggle; trying to get R35 to pay for the shelter .It didn’t seem like much and it didn’t seem like it should be that hard to get, but try telling that to Sakkie, a man in his forties who spent his days trawling the streets of Durban looking for work.  He would disagree. Having work experience as a boiler and a welder but not being able to get a job anywhere meant that Sakkie [...]
