HELPING HAND, CAPE TOWN
Since its inception in 1997, project helping hand has been in full operation in Cape Town. Some of the activities we engage in every week include; meeting the physical and spiritual needs of the less privileged, providing maternity centers with all needed materials, providing educational materials to less privileged schools, providing food, clothes to more than 700 kids within cape town, providing succor to bed ridden patients in health care centers, providing homes to women that gave birth outside marriage, and providing emotional support to kids that have suffered different forms of abuse.

ACTIVATED LIBRARY SOWETO
Diepkloof, a Christian library that commenced operation in October 2007 in Soweto. The aim for building the library is to provide assistance to teachers in Soweto who taught courses in Christian leadership, boost the morale of youth in the community, and to give educational empowerment to everyone. Other than educational activities, the library is sometimes used as a venue for fellowship meetings, search the scripture sessions and prayer meetings. Books that teach spiritual growth are in abundance in the library.

THE WORLD SUMMIT
A summit was organized in 2002, with the aim of addressing sustainable development. Of all the groups that attended the summit, we were the only group that came from a church. Amazingly, about 5000 participant signified their interest to let Jesus into their heart. TV and radio station crew men were on ground to capture our presentation.

HOPE OF THE FUTURE, CAPE TOWN
To commemorate our 8th year of operation, we decided to commission a soup kitchen whose construction was sponsored by Rotary Int’l. As part of the celebration, more than 100 kids were provided with meals on daily basis, while about 200 families were provided with regular weekly meals. To ensure the meals were rich enough, we spent considerable amount of money buying meat and prepared special meals for people suffering from HIV/AIDS. For this act and other similar ones, we have been given an award of excellence by Western Cape health department. Added to that, more than 50 volunteers from far and wide have come to provide support to the scheme.
