Lesedi la Batho: Our new partner in South Africa
Rays of Hope is a public benefit organisation. Since 2003 Rays of Hope has supported its partner organisation in South Africa "Changing Lives Ministries CLM". Due to the help and support of our sponsors in Germany CLM could expand, promote and stabilize its' Village of Joy and the schoolfeeding project at Riversands Primary School in Diepsloot. We are now happy that CLM told us that it will be able to carry on without further help from abroad. We as the members of Rays of Hope e.V. see this stiuation as a new opportunity to expand our field of activity and put it on a broader basis.
Our deputy chairman Guido Baron had the chance to visit "Lesedi la Batho" (Light for the people) close to Pretoria and got an idea about its' aims, work and vision: Lesedi la Batho is a faith based NGO that seeks to inspire, empower, motivate, engage and equip the youth and the community at large through sport, education, skills training and social enterprise development, community wellness and arts & culture. After a long time of working together with CLM in Johannesburg/Diepsloot we are now happy to have a new chellenge in South Africa and are looking forward to sharing our experience with "Lesedi la Batho". In "Lesedi la Batho" we found a new partner whose work is based on a large variety of projects which meet our expectiations of sustainable projects to help people help themselves. Dear friends,we hope you will keep on supporting us practically and ideally so that we can continue our charitable work together with our new partner in South Africa.
