Here is an overview of current and planned projects. To learn more or for detailed information, please make contact with us.
Our current priority project
The poor community of Uitkyk in the North West Province, South Africa, with a population of about 3500 people, do not have an adequate water source. They rely on a weekly supply of water from containers which serve for drinking, cooking and washing.
As a priority project, HEF will come to their aid by drilling and installing a water well. The well will provide an additional source to assist the community with water to grow crops and with sanitation.
HEF has a holistic vision and plan for the community of Bapong, North West Province, South Africa. With an estimated population of 40 000, they do not have adequate facilities or services a community of this size should have. To date, we have been able to provide food and clothing for the very poor of the community, however, this is not a sustainable solution. This will be HEF’s plan for 2019/2020.
Clete Stevis and volunteers have been involved with this community for a few years already. Now through HEF, we will be able to further empower this community holistically. Here are the identified areas/touch points:
This Day Care is situated close to an informal settlement in Princess, a suburb of Roodepoort, Gauteng, South Africa. Portia and her team, provide a wonderful service to parents who need a safe place to leave their children while at work. Most parents cannot afford to pay for the service, therefore, subsidising is needed. HEF assists with educational toys, salaries and provides hampers and clothing in winter and a special celebration with gifts for all at the end of each year. HEF also assists this Day Care with monthly consumables, like food, nappies and so on.
Sport events in the prisons is an effective touch point to assist with the rehabilitation of inmates. We are thankful to SA soccer legends who have made themselves available to assist with a soccer clinic which will be held on 13 February 2019. HEF in association with DSTV SuperSport will host the event. Some of Bafana Bafana legends like Fabian McCarthy, Stanton “Stiga” Fredricks, Matthew Booth and Brian Baloi will be couches for the day. These legends mentioned also happen to be Super Sport presenters. Super Sport will record the event which will be aired on DSTV.
The Centre of Hope in Newclare, Johannesburg, South Africa is truly a centre of hope for men who want to live free from substance abuse, specifically drugs and alcohol. Through counselling and support men are assisted with the process of being accepted back into the community. The centre also assists with job recruitment.
HEF assists with contributions towards runnings costs of the centre as well as subsidies for those who simply cannot afford the program fees.
Watch our overview video to see how we assisted with improving the facility’s living conditions.
Besides the focussed projects mentioned, HEF provides financial as well as food and clothing to the poor, widows and orphans of the various communities. Bursaries are also provided to those identified by community leaders.
