Hope for the Hopeless, Future for the Fatherless
Thousands of children in South Africa live as orphans without adults in squatter communities. The children are hungry and lacking basic necessities. Their Abba, Daddy, loves them.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
What We Can Do
Coastal partners with Abba's Pride who is committed to bringing the hope of Christ to orphaned children by coming alongside township churches, in order to help congregations develop sustainable and reproducible ministries that will:
Feed hungry children.
Provide early childhood centers for preschoolers so that they will develop physically, intellectually, spiritually and emotionally, and their older siblings can attend school.
Provide after school "Safe Zones" where children can receive food, tutoring, and spiritual education.
Train preschool providers.
Teach older children to care for their younger siblings.
Intentionally disciple adults and coach them to be transformational leaders.
