KEEPING HOPE ALIVE
When we look at our cities, what do we see? Do we notice the potential opportunities that we have to impact our communities, or do we get overwhelmed by the need that we see all around us? This is a daily struggle in our city.
POPUP West Rand is situated in the heart of the Krugersdorp CBD. It is here, in the heart of the need, that we find our calling and purpose.
Even before the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, a crippling socio-economic climate was taking hold of the West Rand. With youth unemployment rising, homelessness rising, criminality increasing and social unrest in surrounding areas, the need for impact and hope was palpable.
Now, a year and a half later, our community has been severely affected by the impact of the pandemic. Hope is dwindling, and it is here, in the darkness, that we find opportunity to be a light. Hope must be kept alive. HOPE IS ALIVE IN JESUS CHRIST.
In our center, we have seen and also felt the impact in the lives of our learners. We have seen some learners in dire need for assistance and sustenance.
