Über uns

We are a Lutheran Community Centre which runs, amongst various other projects, different youth activities. Our main target group is youngsters between the age of 10 and 25. We operate in Philippi, a Township close to Cape Town with one of the highest crime rates in South Africa. The crime is mostly committed by adolescents who suffer under a lack of self-esteem, direction, leisure time programs and boredom. The youngsters are exposed to many negative influences like gangsterism, substance abuse and teenage pregnancy. We want to help them to make positive life choices by engaging them in enjoyable leisure time programs. We work with their strength and build up their self-esteem. Furthermore, we try to provide an environment where they feel safe, accepted and loved. We strongly believe that through building up the youth, we can create a safer Philippi and South Africa.

Our aims
- get kids off the street
- create a home and a place where they like to be and where they are loved
- build up self-esteem
