“Tshepo” means hope. This is a project to uplift the local community, which we are involved in together with other Churches in our area. Here are some of the areas of the initiative:
Over 60 primary school children are given homework assistance, counseling, computer literacy, books, games and one meal per day by the NG Kerk Linden Park. There are three teachers and a cook/cleaner.
Vegetable Garden and Organic Composting
An agricultural tunnel was donated by Tracker for growing veggies, including an irrigation system which is a far cry from the previous structure we had. We make our own compost and no chemicals are used at the moment. What started as a Soup Kitchen has become more than just a handout, with the development of the food garden and the job creation project.
