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


Weltevreden Community Development Centre

Of particular concern in this community are lack of facilities for the elderly and the large number of refugees who have found a haven here.

Although the community is poor in many respects, one thing they are not short of is willing hands!

Volunteers have been mobilised to help set up an inter-generational support group, which aims to reintegrate the elderly into the community, through interacting with the younger generation in a positive way.

Another project is a communal vegetable garden, to provide fresh nutritious food for the community food kitchen.

Refugees are encouraged to make use of counselling services at the Centre which provide much needed emotional and physical support, as well as helping to integrate them into the community.
