Boere Gemeenskap Transvaal started as a dream and is the vision of the founding member and chairperson – Leon Cronje. It all started ten years ago with a real life experience of seeing adults and children left in destitute conditions. He encountered a large number of children and parents living on the streets and the experiences they go through just to survive. It hit a nerve when he came in contact with children that escaped to drugs to numb the pain they experienced. This is a cycle that has harsh consequences, claiming the lives of young children. These children and parents are caught up in this ongoing cycle largely driven by the lack of education and desperate surroundings. Leon knew from that point that he was going to start an organization that will search for the answers to assist with the hard and difficult conditions that these poor souls faced on a daily basis. He wanted to eliminate most of these vexing situations of unfortunate children and parents.

Even though he was earning a meager salary from his employment as an estate agent, he managed to put aside money and gave that as a donation to the unfortunate and destitute children monthly. He also spent a lot of time with these children to familiarize himself with the problems they encounter and to better understand their world, their desires and dreams. Leon realised that despite their extreme hardships these children remained children first.

These children are exposed to constant danger and face all kind of physical and sexual abuse from the antisocial elements. He knew that he had to tackle this problem head on and work towards a more permanent solution. Many children and adults die on the street because of exposure to a number of unhealthy elements. We wanted to contribute in a small way to in an attempt to mitigate the problems of children and adults living in the street. In realising the enormous magnitude of this problem, we decided to spend a lot of time in educating them about safety both personal and societal.

The disintegration of family structures due to the environment and the prevailing economic circumstances have caused an increase in the numbers of these people. Leon’s vision is to run a child friendly shelter for these unfortunate children where they could find their lost freedom and grow into healthy and educated adults.

In 2015 the Non Profit Organization was started in a humble but determined manner. Through a driven passion the Boere Gemeenskap Transvaal has grown exponentially in the first three months of its existence. We feel proud that the organisation has been instrumental in bringing about an attitudinal change from the society towards children and adults and in ridging them with a positive outlook. In most cases positive guidance goes a long way in securing a better future for the generation to come.

As a Non Profit Organization we are delighted and blessed that we are able to assist and ensuring these communities to have hope and productive goals for the future. The long term sustainability of Boere Gemeenskap Transvaal is dependent on the generous support and donations that we receive from the communities where we operate and companies that support the plight of these people that we serve.

FAMILY WORSHIP CENTRE (FWC) WELFARE AND DEVELOPMENT (NPO Number 016-200)
trading as FWC Hospice; has been in operation since 2002. FAMILY WORSHIP CENTRE employs
a holistic approach to serving the community. Whilst we are a Christian organization we serve
people from all walks of life and strive to address their educational, physical, emotional and
spiritual needs as and when required. We operate as an NPO and are dependent on donor
funding.The community we serve lives in dire socio-economic circumstances and we endeavour to be
a beacon of HOPE by providing a safe environment where adults and children can receive
free training.
We are totally dependent on professionals and students from local tertiary institutions who
volunteer their time and skills to the academy by providing instruction to the students at the
facility. We have coined the term HOPE INVESTORS to address our volunteers, because that is
exactly what they are.Whilst the primary objective is to provide the individual with skills that they can take into
the marketplace; the centre offers a reprieve from the often dire home situation that the
individual comes from. They are offered a simple meal, counselling (on request only) and an
opportunity to develop relationships with like-minded people. Our facilitators aka HOPE INVESTORS are our greatest asset. They come from the same
communities that they now serve (at their own cost and with no financial reward or
incentive); have grown beyond the poor socio-economic circumstance of their youth and are
highly skilled on their respective fields of expertise. The students (adult or youth) can identify
with the facilitator and vice versa. This compliments and encourages an authentic
relationship and learning experience. We serve the townships surrounding the centre (for almost a 20km radius). These include
Newclare, Westbury, Bosmont, Claremont, Roodepoort and Soweto. The communities suffer
from the typical ills prevalent in lower socio-economic neighbourhoods; such as low
employment rates, high levels of school drops outs, teenage pregnancies, single parent (often
female) headed homes, low income housing developments / informal settlements; poor
service delivery, drug abuse, child and women abuse and alcohol abuse. Whilst the average
age of students is 20 to 65 years of age; we have young people aged 10 to 17 years who
attend the grade 11 to 12 extra maths, accountancy and science classes and we even have a
few 40 to 50 years old who are desperate to improve their lives.
