receive the training they need to follow their dreams.
‘Hope’ lives in Nongoma
It’s a small fund, but it does big things. Sifiso can testify to this. As an orphan in St Margaret’s Parish in Nongoma (in the KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa), his big dream was to become a nurse. And Doreen, leader of the St Margaret’s Mothers’ Union was determined to help him make his dream a reality.
And the ‘God is Able’ fund for tertiary training was started.
Today, Sifiso is qualified, working as a nurse at the Benedictine Hospital in Nongoma, living his dream, and earning a living.
God is certainly able, but He also ‘enables’ by lighting a spark in the hearts of good people.
Great things can be built on the gift of ‘hope’. And if you’ll click here now to make your donation, your gift will carry that hope forward, so that other young people from St Margaret’s Parish can receive the training to enable their way forward to become self-sufficient, but more importantly become qualified to serve their community, and give back.
One of the greatest stories ever told never actually happened. It was fiction. But we know that fiction may speak truths in the clearest and most convincing [and convicting] manner possible. The story is the parable that Jesus told of THE PRODIGAL SON. [more]
A SMALL CHANGE
At our recent Strategic Planning HOPE Africa decided to change the last word in our full name from Health, Opportunity, Partnership, Employment to Empowerment. This was done to reflect what our work is currently all about. While we feel that employment is important, we rather empower and equip people with the necessary skill to find employment.
