We currently working and assisting in Pelican Park, Jim se Bos, Mitchells Plain, Lavender Hill communities with different rescue, assistance programs and successfully running 6 Feeding schemes where we are feeding approximately 1000 people a day.

We intend to do this by educating women, youth, adults and elderly in literacy, life and basic business skills. We would like to run these centres with the help of International and local volunteers. We will promote volunteering from the local community with the intention of creating local jobs, developing skills, encouraging volunteers to have further Interactions with the community and allowing the projects to become self-sustainable.

We would like our projects to feature in local newspapers, on Radio Good Hope, Heart 104.9, KFM, Cape talk radio, Radio Pulpit, Cape TV and Lead SA.
NRPD would like to launch a program, teaching adults to create a suitable income for their families.
The idea behind the program is to teach people basic business skills such as how to write a business plan and draw up a budget. We also mentor them to run a successful business. We aim to run this program every few months teaching many more people to open their own businesses in the community.
With only 26% of the community completing secondary school and an unemployment rate of over 40%, we would like to try and improve this figure by providing a skills centre for unemployed women, youth and adults teaching the basics of reading and writing (so they can write CVs and market themselves) to fundamental skills
The centre will also serve as a base for a variety of empowerment projects where we plan to promote entrepreneurship and self-sufficiency for the women, youth and adults in the community as the large majority of families here are single-parent, mother-run households.
We currently do small projects with the elderly in these areas but due to a lack of facilities we are unable to provide all the services they need. Our first step would be setting up a training centre and reading area for one-on-one tutoring in the centre. A centre such as this one will allow the promotion of self-esteem development amongst young women, adults and youths who are the main breadwinners in these communities. By ensuring that youth, adults and women are occupied in a healthy and stimulating manner through sport and other youth development initiatives.
Through education and life skills we can make a difference in the youth, women, adult and elderly's lives for generations to come. We believe that with the collaboration between your company and NRPD we can run a sustainable and beneficial program for our underprivileged communities. Together we are able to start changing lives and changing futures.
