What is Joshua Project?
Joshua Project is a safe haven for vulnerable children and children living on the street in Jeffreys Bay since 1998. The project functions as a drop-in centre for the children where they receive love, support, education, and training.
The name Joshua means: ‘God saves’ and serves as a constant reminder to us that God alone can save the children at risk in our community. We can only serve as a place of refuge where these children can come to receive acceptance and support in a caring environment provided by people who are passionate about kids and believe that they also should have hope for a better future.
Our project focus
Our project’s focus is to MEND vulnerable children and youth at risk, i.e.
- M = Mentoring
- E = Educating
- N = Nurturing
- D = Discipling
Today the project owns a building containing offices, classrooms, a kitchen, ministry and child care rooms, ablution facilities and a skills development centre. Here the children daily receive food, education, spiritual care and the opportunity to develop their skills.
Daily activities at Joshua Project
- We nurture vulnerable children and youth by providing them with physical and emotional care.
- We educate and provide skills development opportunities to vulnerable children and youth.
- We mentor and disciple vulnerable children and youth through various activities.
Through consistent relationships and education-based programs, we seek to help these children and youth to realize and develop their unique talents; to become healthy, responsible adults and a productive part of the work force and community; and most importantly, to discover their value as a child of God created for a specific purpose.
