A leading, dynamic organisation, professionally enhancing self-reliant communities


Atlantis Community Development Centre

This subsistence fishing community on the West Coast has been badly affected by commercial fishing enterprises – to the extent that food security is one of the major issues. HIV and AIDS are also rife.

Through the WARMTH kitchen, daily meals are provided to the hungry, and items such as blankets, plastic sheeting, food vouchers and clothing are given to those in desperate need.

In response to the AIDS crisis, the Centre is currently implementing a holistic programme that involves pre-and post-test counselling, support groups for those infected with and affected by HIV and AIDS, and awareness programmes within the community and at schools.

An extremely active CDC which has day-to-day contact with its beneficiaries, Atlantis holds regular training courses focusing on resource mobilisation and developing an understanding of local government and related issues.
