Mlungisi The Barber

2018-08-31T11:16:07+02:00The People, Uncategorized|

  Growing up in Lamontville in a two-room shack occupied by ten people, young Mlu had a dream to one day become a pilot. As a child, he had no idea this wouldn’t be that easy to attain but, as he grew older and watched his mother raise their family on a mere domestic worker’s salary, his dream started to seem impossible. It was only once he wasn’t able to complete his Matric and struggled to get a [...]

Themba Dlamini, one of the great success stories to emerge out of CAST's business development programme, has taken his car-wash business to the next level. With dreams of expansion, Themba set out with a mission to purchase a container for his business. This would allow him to have a spaza shop running alongside his carwash so that while customers were waiting, they could hang out, purchase food and drinks and socialise with one another. Last weekend, the passionate [...]

Move Beyond Charity

2018-09-03T11:16:49+02:00Counselling, Education, Poverty Relief, The People, Uncategorized, Youth Development|

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. We believe that changing the world requires more than just a handout, more than just charity; it requires action.... it requires [...]

Hope of the World

2018-09-03T13:26:33+02:00Uncategorized|

Debbie and Ernie Calder, two of CAST's devoted volunteers, had a story and message for everyone this week. We feel moved to respond to the message Pastor John brought to the church under the heading “God in our Country”. John referred to Nehemiah returning to Jerusalem to build the city wall. This wall was important to the people. We also have walls to build in this country ...and bridges. Pastor John’s message also said “start representing and displaying [...]

The Ripple Effect.

2013-06-26T13:52:43+02:00Counselling, The People, Uncategorized|

It’s a one night commitment a week...but it could change a life for eternity. About one and a half years ago, the CAST Street Ministry Team met a man named Johan at one of their weekly visits to The Nest shelter in Durban Central. Many of the team warmed to Johan’s friendly nature and dry sense of humour and over time he became a good friend to the team. He had not had contact with his family for [...]

What if God was one of us?

2018-09-04T11:51:24+02:00The People, Uncategorized|

( IMAGE BY RICHARD BOLLAND) When it comes to loving the poor, I feel that I, along with many other Christians still have not got it right. Actually, we suck. Raise your hand if you feel good when you give some spare change to the boy who comes up to your car window at the intersection. I know I do. This is because I have learned to become satisfied with those "saintly" actions, they have become enough for [...]
