The choices we make determine the course of our lives.
It is said, “two men looked through prison bars – one saw mud and the other saw stars.”
We live in a world where challenging situations, poverty and need can overwhelm us. The way we respond will determine it’s outcome. We can choose death resulting in defeat, or life resulting in our leaving this world having made it a better place for all.
When the seed that has grown to be Project Hope was planted in my heart 17 years ago I said these words on opening the bank account:
“Today I am planting a seed in this office that will grow into a huge tree bringing shade to many in need. It will be a place where healthy babies are birthed in the safety of the ‘nests’ in its branches.”
We create with our mouths and I spoke those words with heart faith and a conviction that with God nothing is impossible. I chose to look up and see stars, to see possibilities when mud was at my feet rising up into a seemingly insurmountable mountain. It is often when faced with the biggest challenge that vision is born.
Every child has the right to hear the good news of Jesus and His love, every child must know that they are valued and precious, they need to become secure in who God has made them and have a vision for the future planted in their hearts. How to accomplish this was the real challenge.
Walking across the car park of our church one morning God placed a blueprint of how to achieve this in my heart.
Train / Influence / Change
At Project Hope we aim to train up children to positively influence their families and bring change to their communities.

The theme for our girls’ camp is ‘I am a Princess’. This camp is led by Madge Blignaut, the Project Manager of Project Hope. Madge has the vision to see our young girls reach their full potential, and together with a group of volunteers, she works to empower and uplift them. Unfortunately, our girls grow up in poverty-stricken areas and are raised in broken homes where they lack positive affirmation. Madge and our volunteers spend quality time with them, where they teach the girls to love and value themselves.
We believe that our camps are one of the vehicles through which we are able to fulfil the mission of Project Hope: train up children to positively influence their families and bring change to their communities.
For More information and if you would like to give towards this camp, contact Madge at 0631890869
