Children Of Promise Orphan Center: We are pressing forward to wrap up some projects here so we can be licensed and begin caring for orphans on a full - time basis at the Center. In October the solar water heaters were installed in the first two homes. In November we laid the foundation for the chicken house and in December we started constructing the water tower to increase the water pressure.! More about the Orphan Center
Cogent Farm. A 43 hectare farm ( 105 acres ) obtained to help provide for Children Of Promise Orphan Center, our other community projects and to help the needy on a greater scale. Here integrated farming will take place. Presently we are erecting special fencing to keep the hundreds of neighbring goats out and working towards drilling a bore hole and installing irrigation. May God be glorified. More about Cogent Farm
News and Events
Churches. Last month the kids from our Botshabelo church had some special fun attending a drawing class and making necklace pendants from polymer clay with one of our visitor friends from the States. Next month is our annual Combined Church Fun Day which we hope will be as much fun for the kids (and adults!) as it was last year.
