For 29 years Rays of Hope, a non-profit company (NPC) and Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) has been partnering for lasting change with the community of Alexandra, on the border of Sandton.
We focus on three areas:
– Orphaned and vulnerable children
– Work readiness
Our aim is to move over 2,800 people in our seven programmes from vulnerability to independence. We also partner with over 30 local NGOs and 110 local businesses to build capacity and wider impact.
Over 8,500 food hampers delivered to date in support of over 55,000 people in Alex
It’s freezing in Alex so Rays of Hope and our partner organisations are collecting blankets, winter clothing (jackets, scarves, gloves, beanies, etc.). Not only will this keep people warm but it will hopefully prevent the fires that ravage Alex in winter.
Donation boxes are available at various locations in Sandton City Shopping Centre, as well as at the Rays of Hope offices in Sandton & Alex.
