Goedgedacht Trust

These projects aimed to address the high incidence of Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder among the children of rural farm workers. Over the years the model has grown into a basket of 18 interventions called the Path of Poverty Program (POP). Our main aim is poverty alleviation delivered through a unique basket of holistic long and short term intervention strategies that are innovative, replicable and in time, sustainable and low cost. Our programs are delivered through our network of community centers where we provide a range of services for children and youth aged 2 months to 18 years and beyond. The POP program includes rural infrastructure development, youth leadership, early childhood development, gender equity, food security, education, safe houses, social development, climate change initiatives and much more. Our vision is to develop self-sustaining, transformed and flourishing communities.
