Faith & Love Through Action

African Blessings seeks to build a generation that has risen against all odds, yet is ready, prepared and confident to take a seat at the table. We aim to help the children in our care to join a new generation of leaders who solve problems and find new and creative ways to grow and improve through equity, distribution and edification.

jochebed CHILDREN'S VILLAGE

Jochebed Children’s Village consists of 16 homes that provide a safe haven and offer a second chance for at-risk children.

 

Each home is run by foster parents who look after six children. African Blessings believes it’s crucial to provide  our children with an upbringing that is as normal and family orientated as possible.

education CENTRE

The  education centre at African Blessings caters for children from infancy through to Grade R. Once the children are old enough, they are placed at a local school in order to continue their education.

Our goal is to give the children placed in our care the opportunity to grow into confident individuals, allowing them to develop to their full potential and have every chance of success in life.

African Blessings NPC

African Blessings is a registered non-profit company (2003/006636/08) and a public benefit organisation (930029073). African Blessings is situated near Bronkhorstspruit in Gauteng, South Africa.

The farm forms the foundation upon which all the African Blessings projects are run and is located strategically between three major rural communities straddling Gauteng and Mpumalanga (Rethabiseng, Ekangala and Zithobeni). African Blessings, together with African Hills, provides employment and further training opportunities within these communities.

The primary focus at African Blessings is Jochebed Children's Village, which provides a safe and nurturing home for at-risk children. It has been a long journey to build and establish the 16 homes that form part of the village, but we are finally ready to begin taking in more children.

Sustainable farming projects form a large part of African Blessings’ self-sustaining programs. They provide food security, as well as continued and nutritious food sources, for the children and staff who live on the farm.

EASTER CELEBRATIONS

THE FARM HAS BEEN A HIVE OF ACTIVITY THIS MONTH WITH MANY PROJECTS COMMENCING.

Easter weekend was a memorable weekend at the farm with all the Farm and Village residents attending a Church service in the morning, where all had time to reflect on the past year, the love and sacrifice that has been needed to endure these troubling times and the ultimate love that God has for His creations.
