What I experienced with some of our youth members last week: Anyone who knows me, also knows that I have not had the best of luck when it comes to cars. I have met many interesting people when my car has broken down. Often, it does start. Giving us an excellent conversational ice-breaker. I often pick up our young people for …
We have identified a huge increase of unemployment in our young adults. So many of them come from horrific situations, have not completed their education, and have no working experience making it so much harder for them to find jobs. In our phase one project we will focus on young adults ages 16 to 24 to empower them to become …
Bullying is a huge problem our youth face. It breaks them down mentally and emotionally. It often gets physical, leading to children getting hurt or losing their lives. Many bullied children self-harm and become suicidal when they feel that it’s never going to end. Hope, Faith and Grace Community Project has a solution to this. It starts with the youth who have gone through some of the worst life experiences you could imagine. We want to help help them pick up the pieces, find their purpose, build their confidence, make a difference in others’ lives and eventually have a job and a sustainable future. Make a pledge and stand with us to start doing something for our youth today. Contact Kerry 072 177 0489 or Wendy 076 629 9703 for more information.

Our youth were privileged to have two guests join us at the HFG Youth Club. Drugs are becoming a huge problem in our society, and contribute to the high poverty and crime situation we are facing. We are on a mission to teach our youth the negative impacts drugs have on their lives and invited Codi to join us and share his life story with us. He told us how his life was changed by drugs and the struggle of getting over the addiction, to working at Elim and producing and sharing his story through his songs. How only God fills a void. We are going to focus a lot on drug abuse and stand alongside other organisations and community members that feel the same way to create awareness about the problem.
We also had Korstiaan Schipper who is gifted with prophecy to share word with our youth, with the encouragement to always get confirmation over any word spoken over them.
Thank you to both of our guests for taking the time to inspire our youth. We hope you visit us again soon. God bless.
Thank you so much to Potters Haven for the donation of the projector. I pray blessings over Potters Haven and the challenging work you do. Still you managed to bless our youth. Your kindness and love is making a huge difference in the lives of so many children that have been neglected. Hope, Faith and Grace is privileged to work alongside you and learn as much as we can for our youth. Keep up the amazing work, Andrew and Marlene🤗🤗💗
Community outreach is such a big part of our organisation. I know people are asking, “How can we still continue with our outreach programmes when we start our safe haven youth centre?’’. It’s really simple, as our youth will be involved.
Our young adults will utilise what they have been taught and their talents and use them to make an exciting programme with dance, song and a story line for children at selected schools, organisations, other centres and fundraising events. This will help build their confidence and leadership skills.
They will help at selected animal shelters, giving them emotional healing and the understanding of how to love and nurture animals. This is very therapeutic and will assist them with emotional healing. Often, animal shelters have not got enough volunteers, and this will help them on the odd day to be able to focus on the kennels, admin, and day-to-day running.
They will be involved in feeding schemes, where they can connect with underprivileged people so that they can understand how important it is to make the correct life style decisions and to teach them humanity and kindness to those in need.
