This organization’s aim is to focus on uplifting the community of Missionvale and as well as empowering the youth. The Missionvale care center has different types of projects that everyone can relate to.

Within the townships, residents face so many troubling situations, from unemployment to HIV/AIDS. This organization strive to make a difference and its determined to help overcome these issues through social development, children development, sports development and self-development. They offer the following projects;

Primary School: we all aware of how important education is, this is why 140 kids from the ages of 5-12 years go to the center for support with reading, writing, social skills and sports skills. What they need as well is some individual attention and guidance.

Nutrition unit: helps the community of Missionvale every day by serving them a half loaf of bread and a scoop of nutritious soup powder, so they can be able to prepare meals for their families. This service is available for everyone who needs it, and the nutrition unit gives away food parcels every week to the families that have been adopted by the center.

Child Support and Development: this project is designed for children to have activities to participate on after school, so they won’t have time to take part in crime activities. The children can get a meal, computer lessons, learn to play the drums or cultural dancing, and play sports that they find interest in. The organization has other projects such as; Clothing warehouse, Community gardening, Crafter unit and Medical support and clinic.

As a volunteer you will be requested to participate in some of the projects mentioned above. Remember this is a non-profit organization, which makes the Missionvale care center dependent on volunteers and donations. The help of volunteers can really be appreciated, because without the volunteers, the care center will not be a success. If you want to take a gap year and volunteer in Africa, change your career path or you are just interested in volunteering in general; this is the project you should be a part of. It will change your perception of life in a good way, and it’s guaranteed that you will gain a sense of achievement. We urge you to take part in this initiative and help to change the future for the better. The community of Missionvale will highly appreciate you being involved; we know that they will benefit a lot from it.
