THE CRADLE OF HOPE is an independent social upliftment and community development organisation that helps women & children in desperate need. Our vision is to empower less fortunate persons, the youth, aged, disabled, jobless and uneducated to lead a meaningful and dignified life so that they can fulfill their physical, spiritual, family, social, career and financial needs and to enable them to pay it forward to others from day to day. Our mission is to create and facilitate an environment to care for and mentor our “Vision” audience through a care centre where they will be provided with safe housing, healthy nutrition, medical services, education skills training, job creation, creative recreation and spiritual development on a sustainable basis. The Cradle of Hope does not receive ANY Government Funding. We depend entirely on donations and sponsorships received from companies and individuals, as well as our own fundraising projects and job-creation efforts. The total operating costs for our various projects amount to R320,000.00 per month.
