Support Disadvantaged Communities in Cape Town by Donating to our Vehicle Fundraising Campaign


We are always in need of help with our mission, whether that be through donations, sponsorship or volunteering. We are always grateful for any assistance.

Help us continue supporting at-risk communities across the Mother City!

25% of South Africans are deprived of access to food on a daily basis, whilst another 25% are on the verge of going hungry. During lockdown, the unemployment rate reached an all-time high of over 30%!

We’re actively fighting hunger, as well as a number of serious key issues across the Western Cape – and we need your help.

In the past, we have managed to transport supplies in creative and miraculous ways but we are now actively seeking your help to find a more sustainable solution.

We’re fundraising for a multipurpose vehicle to help us improve our efforts in ending the cycle of hunger, poverty and violence in at-risk communities & informal settlements across Cape Town/South Africa.

Benefits of fundraising for a multipurpose vehicle to help informal settlements

The multipurpose vehicle we’re fundraising for will be used to:

Source and deliver basic emergency supplies to disadvantaged communities, including women’s sanitary products, building materials (essential during flood and fire seasons), clothing, blankets and more.

Continue running feeding schemes (where we feed over 5000 people per week), in partnership with Ladles of Love and provide for disadvantaged communities throughout Cape Town including the City Centre, Khayelitsha, Joe Slovo, Elsies River, Wallacedene, Bloekombos, Fisantekraal and Scottsdene.

Transport volunteers to help us provide skills development training programs including Learn to Bake program, Fashion Academy and Computer program. Volunteers include farmers, entrepreneurs, chefs, teachers, social workers, counsellors and IT programmers/developers.

Continue providing support to gender-based violence victims and trauma victims in communities in the Western Cape, in partnership with FAMSA (Families South Africa) and our volunteers.

Deliver farming supplies, sought-after equipment and professionals to assist us in training people to subsistence farm and farm sustainably  – through our LearntoFarm & LeartoGrow initiatives. We provide people with the skills and knowledge to grow food to feed their families and raise income to improve their livelihoods. Our farming project also helps us produce meals for our feeding scheme (13,000 meals to date!)

We sincerely hope you’ll support us as we strive to make the lives of disadvantaged people in South Africa better day by day. Get involved and donate to help us #KEEPHOPEALIVE for at risk communities in 2021.
