Our recent visits, feedback and special days

Kirchentag 2019

Outreach Foundation took part in The 37th German Protestant Kirchentag during June 2019 in Dortmund, Germany.

We displayed information on the organisation and spoke to people about our programmes. We also had the opportunity to tell them more about us and the great things we do for the people in our area. We had a great time and would like to thank all those who took the time to listen to us and learn more about the Outreach Foundation.

French Lutheran Visitors

Outreach Foundation was honoured to host a group of French Lutherans during October. They were given a tour of our premises and visited our crafts project, Boitumelo, our computer, counselling and youth centres, looked at the rooftop garden and then were entertained by our incredible youth in the play, My silence is talkative. It was a fun day enjoyed by all. Thank you for visiting us and taking the time to get to know us. We hope to see you again one day.

Mandela Day 2018

Outreach Foundation’s staff had the privilege of joining Phoenix College, Trinity House, Roly Poly Creche and Rooftop gardener, Sibongile Cele to celebrate Madiba’s 100th birthday.

Together we planted beans with the children of Roly Poly in recycled plastic bottles supplied by Outreach Foundation’s Boitumelo. The students from Phoenix College and Trinity House helped the kids with the planting and we all can’t wait to see the beans and tomatoes grow. The kids have the responsibility of watering them weekly. We are inspiring the children to be future farmers one seed at a time. The rooftop garden we have on our premises aims to not only provide a sustainable food source in Hillbrow but is an inspiration to these children.In addition to the planting, we cleaned doors, entrances and painted blackboards ready for future signage. We also prepared food for the very hungry and exhausted, but happy visitors.We’d like to thank everyone for their participation and support for this very special day.
