Zoë Trust

WHAT: Heideveld is an area situated close to the N2. The area is plagued with high levels of poverty, gangsterism and crime. It forms part of the “cape flats”. At our house in Badsberg Close we are trying to be a light in the community. In the view of the diversity of our community it is a privilege to be able to reach out to the children of the area. We aim to uplift the community by educating the children and warning them against the dangers of abuse, prostitution and pornography, during our weekly groups on Wednesdays. We also run a library once a week, where children come to read and play. The house is always open for a hungry tummy, a friendly smile, a hug, or for the children to find peace against the problems they face every day. The children have come to know this as a house where love rules and assistance is always given. No one is judged and no one rejected. The children are amazing. Some have shy smiles. Some talk loudly. Some show us their new dance moves every week and others love to just sit in the corner and listen, but all of them hunger for love, and thus the number grows every week. We believe that the only way to fight the darkness and the evils of the neighbourhood is with persistent and abundant grace and love. In the same way, the Lord saves us, continually, every day, with His grace and His abundant love. We also organise many community projects, such as community outreach with the children, Valuable To Jesus campaigns at schools, field trips, parties and life skills groups for girls aged 12-22. Feel free to visit our website or contact us for more information. 

NEED: We believe tolerance and peace is found when we get to know each other and experience a world different than our own. This is why we would love for you to come and volunteer at any of our projects during the week. Contact us to find out how you can get involved. Other than that we always need specific donations (depending on the need at the time) as well as financial donations for certain projects.

Masekhane Recycle Swop Shop

WHAT: The children of Masekhane collect bottles, tins, plastics and other recyclables and bring them in bags to the White Shark ‘Swop Shop’. In return, they earn buying points that they ‘spend’ in the shop. The shop opens at two on Tuesday afternoons, but the children gather long before that, lining up to earn their points. Happy chatter fills the air as they wait their turn to trade in their points for something from the Swop Shop. They trade their points for school necessity's, clothes, toys, sweets, hygiene products, etc. The shop carries only worthwhile stock such as stationery, simple clothing, and food basics, and relies completely on donations. In this way, the children learn valuable lessons about caring for their environment: They learn that it’s important to recycle resources and at the same time, they learn to care for their environment by picking up litter. Not only does their village look nicer, but they also earn something through this care. Conservation, they see, has many values. 

NEED: Donations are always welcome and keeping the shop stocked is an on-going project in itself! The most popular items are calculators, felt pens, soap, face cloths, trousers, shorts, torches, pencil crayons, t-shirts, pens, pencils, warm jerseys, tooth brushes, tooth paste, notebooks, storybooks, and stuffed toys.
