An invitation from Mia . . .

Mia’s a HOPE Africa Holiday Club volunteer who knows that unlike the busy and structured days of attending school, the holidays place children at risk.

Not the fortunate privileged ones – but those children who are placed by poverty in fringe townships and informal settlements where there are no recreational facilities.

This means ‘nothing to do’ during the three weeks of the coming July holidays.

‘Nothing to do’ = danger. The danger of being tempted to try alcohol or drugs, or to get involved in crime. Plus the danger of being alone at home and vulnerable whilst parents are at work.

Mia’s inviting you to join her at the coming July Holiday Clubs held at parishes where they’re most needed, by clicking here to make your donation.

And we’re joining her in asking for your help.

Around 8 000 children attend these clubs in and around Cape Town! And even though they’re run by trained volunteers, attendance is free – so you can imagine the cost to us.

In order to offer the children a wide range of sports and games, we’ll have to buy new equipment – and replace old and worn out equipment.

We give each child a pack of printed lessons, life skills information, Bible studies and worksheets. A nourishing meal is also provided – and in these days of our crippling drought and water crisis, each child will need a bottle of water.

Depending on sponsorship, Andrew’s hoping to attend the club again this year. He loves the fact that ‘you can have fun as a Christian’. And the food means so much to him. He sums it up by saying, “I’m so grateful to all the sponsors”.

As a committed friend of HOPE Africa, we’re hoping you’ll click here now to make your holiday club donation.

Because when you do, you’ll help us offer places to as many children as possible – in time for our July school holidays.

We hope you know how many good things come from your generosity. You regularly change lives, and you make the world a gentler and happier place. Thank you.

REFLECTIONS – BEING AT HOME

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.
