Take a South African adventure and you’ll experience beauty and gratitude in a way that will change your life. Our work in South Africa is about profoundly and sustainably offsetting the barriers that come with extreme poverty, an AIDS epidemic, and the aftermath of apartheid. Whether you’re gathered to work in a shack community, shaking the hand of a Zulu chief, or high-fiving a child who’s learning to read and defeat the incredible odds stacked against him—you’ll see God moving in radical ways. It’s intense. It’s exciting. It’ll shake you up. And it may just spark a whole new direction for your life.

Change that will last

We partner with South African organizations to build lasting and effective change.

GRACE BIBLE CHURCH

South Africa has been called the most unequal country in the world, and is the nation with the most people living with HIV/AIDS. Our partner, Grace Bible Church, is one of the largest churches in South Africa, centered in Soweto, a mega-township just outside Johannesburg. Grace Bible is a true force for change in the country and a beacon for hope.


Our partnership with Grace Bible Church and the groundbreaking Center of Hope (Soweto) is about generation-altering change by building into the promising culture of South African entrepreneurship.

Build the Future

Build The Future was founded in 2006 to facilitate the early learning development of children in the informal settlements around Johannesburg. They believe that to encourage these grassroots communities, they must be “in the trenches”. So they are working to start pre-schools in these communities around South Africa knowing that children who are given healthy food and an ideal learning environment will be the successfully employed, tax paying citizens of South Africa’s tomorrow.
