During the past 14 years of operation, we obviously faced a huge task. We, therefore, have only focused on a few of our main objectives.
- To develop and uplift the disadvantaged in the community of New Horizons.
- To break the shackles of poverty and hopelessness through their own effort.
- To encourage the development of self-esteem and awareness of their own worth.
- To provide care, support and counselling for those who cannot help themselves, the young neglected children, the frail elderly, disabled, those living with HIV/Aids, TB and any others who are in need.
We have also embarked upon networking with similar organisations, meeting one of our secondary objectives.
We did a survey about the most critical need in the community and found the lack was proper nutrition; this motivated us to render the following services free of charge.
We need financial support for all our projects. In addition we also need the following items:
We need to buy property in the name of the organisation and to run all our existing projects, the estimated cost will be 3 mil.
We need two vehicles to operate with ,one Nissan bakkie to pick up and drop food products and one small branded vehicle for day to day activity. The estimate cost for transport will be R260 000.
