      Ticket cost: We would like this event to be accessible to everyone and yet there are still significant costs to be able to do an event of this nature. We are therefore offering a sliding scale payment (between R200-R1000 pp) where you can choose what you are able to pay depending on the resources available to you. Please give this some practical thought and prayer and pay what you or your organization or church have capacity for.

  •   George is running his first 87km Comrades Marathon in June this year in aid of grandmothers, known as ‘gogos’ in isiZulu. Like many of the young people in our communities, George would not be where he is today without the unconditional love and support of his grandmother in Kenya, who made sure that he had a strong foundation in life. CAST wants to shine a light on the role of Gogo Wami (my grandmother) in the lives of the young people George has worked with in our Youth ministry over the years. In the 14 communities where CAST operates, grandmothers are commonly the primary caregivers, fulfilling the role of both mother and father as a result of unfortunate circumstances, and forming the backbone of the community in instilling strong morals and values in the younger generations. Join us in honoring and supporting 100 of these strong women by sponsoring R50 for every 10kms that George runs or sponsor a food parcel for R350. The funds raised will provide food parcels to widow Gogos identified by our partner churches as being most vulnerable due to physical or financial strains. Like these women, George will be challenged to go beyond physical strength and develop mental endurance to overcome the test. Support #GogoWami

  • Feed a family for life

    Help Us Feed a Family - FOR LIFE.

    Our vision is to shift people from receiving monthly food parcels to becoming someone employed feeding their own families and even starting their own businesses employing other people to do the same. In light of the Covid-19 pandemic and civil unrest in KwaZulu-Natal, which affected countless families financially and psychologically, equipping them with the skills to help themselves instils a strong sense of self-efficacy and hope for the future. We have partnered with Farming God’s Way to implement their methodology with our partner church communities. The 3 main approaches to this are – no ploughing, 100% cover with mulch (God’s blanket) and crop rotation. This starts with planting 'Gardens of Faithfulness' based on the scripture, He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much (Luke 16:10). They are unique in size and development as each garden is designed to start at 1m x 2m, making it more manageable for most families. Four different vegetables can be grown, namely: beans, spinach, beetroot and spring onion. If the family is able to faithfully manage this size vegetable garden, they can then extend it. Every step of the process is guided by Biblical keys to unlock Godly solutions for effective management tools (doing things on time, to high standards and with minimal wastage) to address food insecurity. You can support this project by donating R350 and make a lasting difference in someone's life.
