Bringing life to our community.
Who We Are
We are a faith based registered charity with several entities to inspire hope and drive growth in people’s lives. We have a mandate to bring life to our community by working across areas such as youth empowerment, leadership training, volunteering, supporting essential and secular skills acquisition and deployment, relationships, family, local & international student support and recreational activities. We engage our community through various strands of our ministry.
Our mission is to Rebuild, Repair and Restore. Our community outreach is carried out in 3 phases.
Rebuild: We are committed to rebuilding communities by identifying needs such as homelessness, drug misuse and addiction, unemployment, poverty etc and then channel our resources to support such needs.
Repair: We engage with the broken in heart by reason of broken relationships, marital issues, confusion, life pressures, abuse or whatever might be the cause of the brokenness. We aim to provide an environment that facilitates all-round healing with the provision of inspirational teachings, counselling, advise, and referrals.
Restore: We aim to restore hope and vision that would create the necessary drive for purposeful living. We focus on equipping people to become creative, multi-disciplinary and possess the necessary skills and knowledge required to become relevant and impactful in the marketplace.
