New offices in Pretoria!

Outreach Foundation’s Pretoria branch has moved; we now have our own premises in the Kutlwanong Democracy Centre, joining multiple like-minded organisations such as CSVR Trauma Clinic; Lawyers for Human Rights; and UNHCR, who like us, are doing essential community work.

We are excited and loving our new space and can’t wait to have more people visit us at the Kutlwanong Democracy Centre situated at 357 Visagie Street, Pretoria.
Outreach Foundation opened our Pretoria office in 2019. Until now, we have been operating from St Peter’s Lutheran Church, where we offered counselling services, basic English lessons and sewing and beautician (Make-up & Nails) courses to the residents of Pretoria.

Now, with our new space, which includes a training and computer room and a large hall and counselling offices, we can continue to offer our great programmes and can now even include a new programme – our Basic Computer course.

A huge thank you to ELM for making this move possible and to t. Peters for an amazing partnership thus far!
