In line with our objective of bringing lasting change to Alex, Rays of Hope is taking proactive steps towards organisational transformation to ensure we are better equipped to understand and meet the needs of the community we serve.

As such our team has just started working through a globally recognised Values-Based Leadership course, facilitated by the Ki Leadership Institute. It is a 10-week training programme dedicated to boosting morale and establishing a more productive and inclusive culture within organisations.

While this has been a rewarding and fulfilling experience for our management team so far, we are excited about the impact this will have on the rest of our organisation, on the work that we do, and eventually, on the people of Alexandra.

Our hope is that we are able to pay our learnings forward in the form of training and workshops that will be facilitated by our staff within the community. This is, of course, a dream that is quite a few years in the making. However, we are working on building the foundations now for this to become a reality in the not-too-distant future.

You or your organisation can help us make this reality and bring true and meaningful transformation to the community of Alex by helping us finance more staff members to participate in the Values-Based Leadership course and start making a difference in their own lives, in their Rays of Hope roles and for Alex residents.  

You can donate here and help us bring change and transformation to Alex. For more information, please contact Tracey Peppler at [email protected], or visit for more details on the Values-Based Leadership training programme.
