Established in 2019, The Father’s Heart Community Development was birthed to address South Africa’s burgeoning Orphan and Vulnerable Children (OVC) crisis strategically and comprehensively. Based in the impoverished community of Fisantekraal, their model is focused on a hand-up, not hand-out strategy, creating mechanisms to support and empower OVC as well as the parents/guardians who care for them by providing a holistic solution through the provision of the necessary physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual resources to enable them to break the cycle of poverty, inequality, and hopelessness. This is achieved through their 5 core pillars:

  • Training and equipping parents and guardians
  • Facilitating access to quality education & services
  • Job creation and skills development
  • Social Protection – support & holistic care of the most vulnerable in our society, and
  • Growing and developing children through their afterschool program.
