Although the landscape and wildlife of Cape Town, South Africa is beautiful, the living conditions for millions in the surrounding townships is not. In the post Apartheid era, racism, violence, unemployment, extreme poverty and HIV/Aids are the reality for children and their families. We have an opportunity to make an impact in the townships of Paarl, a community where children are abandoned by their parents and where hope has worn thin. Join us in an amazing effort to distribute food to hungry children, conduct a children’s VBS program and help build a playground at the Tiffany center….which is a place of hope in the community! You will come back with a huge heart for the amazing people of Paarl!

You may not know this already, Africa is an amazing place. From the people to the landscape, nothing in Africa disappoints. Join us as we build a playground for the children in the city of Kampala. Playing on a playground is an experience that not many in Uganda have had. In addition to the playground we will be building a Hope Center/Kids Hub. This is a converted shipping container that will serve as a place of outreach and ministry. Everything from sports ministry to art ministry will be hosted in this center. Come with us and see what God is doing in Uganda.
