Mission

We aim to bring transformative solutions to poverty through empowerment and opportunity. While some organizations focus on one aspect of need in an impoverished community, we have a multifaceted approach that helps the whole person. Because poverty is complex, so are we.​ The combination of education, economic development, spiritual formation, and life development is impacting individuals and communities in transformative ways.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The scale of our dreams at Hope Africa Collective is huge. Our goal is a world without extreme poverty. And we believe we can achieve that goal — together — by holistically empowering people in poverty to build better lives for themselves, their families, and their communities.

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Economic Empowerment Program

Our Economic Empowerment Program is holistic and multifaceted. We equip young leaders with math and financial literacy, business aptitude, and trade skills. We support innovative ideas and empower students to pioneer businesses that provide long-term earnings for their families, employment for others, and vital community growth. We also run a microenterprise incubator, launching self-sustaining hair salons and handyman businesses.

Population(s) Served
Economically disadvantaged people
Unemployed people

Our Social Development program includes an 8-week course for 18-35 year-olds, targeting all aspects of their physical, emotional, interpersonal, and spiritual development. Students are strategically equipped in oral English, health education, math and financial literacy, conflict resolution, goal-setting, and overall life and relationship skills.

People are multi-faceted, so we take a multi-faceted approach to life and community development. This course is a perfect example of how we do this on the individual level.

We have established a support center to assist students who complete our programs to enter into future study or job opportunities. Around 70% of our students have no access to a computer or the internet, making it that much more difficult when it comes to finding jobs or applying online for study opportunities. Our support center is equipped with computers and online access—as well as trained staff who can assist and guide—to give students the tools they need to apply online for educational courses, scholarships, or jobs.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Economically disadvantaged people

Studies show that early childhood development leads to greater success at school, higher employment and earning opportunities, better overall health, lower dependence on welfare, and a decrease in crime and poverty levels. Focusing on this age group makes a significant impact in community transformation and creating a future without poverty.

Our reproducible Early Education model launches community-based schooling programs focusing on each child’s holistic development. Through this program, we will cultivate successful next generation leaders through quality, compassionate, and integrative early childhood education initiatives.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth
Economically disadvantaged people

As a faith-based organization that believes in the principles and truth of the Bible, we believe our Spiritual Formation initiatives have the power to change lives from the inside out. We equip, mobilize, and inspire leaders, pastors, and churches to follow the way of Jesus in working alongside the poor and oppressed.

Church Equip -
We empower and equip the local church and church leadership, with the goal of seeing the Church become the primary source of development in the communities in which we work. We provide various regular seminars and meetings for pastors and leaders of churches to be equipped in leadership development, discipleship, and Biblical training. Through our partnership with dozens of churches in South African townships, we are seeing new levels of community transformation take place.
Our year-long leadership and discipleship program, EPIC (Equipping People in Christ), empowers young leaders through classes, small groups, one-on-one mentorship, and hands-on ministry opportunities. This course spiritually develops students in topics such as grace, identity in Christ, Biblical worldview, purpose, relationships, and servant leadership.

Biblical Education -
We believe Biblical training should be accessible and affordable. In partnership with The King’s University (TKU) and South African Theological Seminary (SATS), we lead pastoral certificate programs, offering valuable training to local pastors and church leaders, many of whom have before been able to afford Biblical education. We keep the course costs as low as possible to make the program accessible to as many as possible.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We aim to end extreme poverty in South Africa.

At Hope Africa Collective, we invest in sustainable solutions to the root causes of poverty and injustice. We believe in holistically developing individuals and communities through economic empowerment, social development, early education, and spiritual formation.

We aim to lead the charge in investing into the lives of people. Through holistic personal development, we equip individuals to build better lives for themselves, their families, and their communities.

As committed and passionate people grow in their own personal capacity — in their skills, knowledge, and understanding — widespread community transformation always occurs. We empower these young leaders to spark and sustain change in their communities. This is the power of investing in the one, to influence the many.

Our ability to accomplish our goals stems from the grace of God; our vast collective experience in ministry, business, and cross-cultural endeavors; our strategic partnerships both nationally and internationally; our unique life development program; our passionate and gifted team of staff; and our incredible volunteers from around the world.

Over 985 men and women have made the decision to become committed followers of Jesus Christ.

130 churches have been transformed through Biblical training, leadership development, & discipleship.

20,000 church members have been impacted through the equipping of pastors & church leaders.

Dozens have found financial freedom for their families by launching sustainable microenterprises.

80% of Hope Africa Collective’s staff are local South Africans who have been mentored into leadership.

8,320 individuals have been impacted through holistic personal development & empowerment programs.

Hundreds have secured employment to provide for their families through our job training & placement programs.

72,760 people have been impacted throughout our 8 years of working together to end poverty in South Africa.
