On 24 May Born to Care sent an outreach party to visit Touch Communities in Rustenburg, this is ther report:

Touch Communities started as a Pregnancy Crisis Centre, called Neo Birth Rustenburg. And as a PCC, they realised that they needed to expand their vision within their Centre if they truly wanted to bring transformation within their community. Through this expansion, their vision now includes caring for the orphaned and vulnerable children with no regard for culture or colour! (So called OVC) By adapting their centre and actively building into children’s lives, they have remarkably transformed the community of Rustenburg, impacting 45 000 lives in the past 12 years!

This new strategy of theirs involves 80 caregivers who each take care of between 20-30 children (OVC). These caregivers initially all received basic counsellors training and have continually received training on a weekly basis in all areas regarding children’s needs. These caregivers then visit each child at least once a week in their homes, where they gather a list of the children’s needs. These lists are processed weekly at Touch Communities’ office and through networks and partners they are able to meet these needs.
Statistics on every donation, service and training is kept, as they are presented in proposals for funding to donors who require this information.
They receive so much funding that all involved in Touch Communities receive market related salaries!
This is the KINGDOM!

We at Born to Care feel extremely challenged because we know that this is too, a concern on God’s heart for the Greater Delmas area! We feel very overwhelmed and can hear God instructing us to use what we have and start moving! If you want to be part of the transformation of Delmas and can contribute any service or donation, please contact Heleen Celliers at 079 890 2730.
