Streets of Hope

Introduction

Anchor of Hope is an umbrella registered non profitable organisation, no 67556, whose ultimate goal is to restore dignity to vulnerable people - irrespective of age, gender, ability, political background or race.

This is achieved by providing clothing and non-perishable food to needy families via a network of organisations, counselling and awareness programs, pregnancy home and job preparation and creation.

Within the sub-division of “JOB CREATION” we have a couch factory, bus seat upholstery, bakery and street cleaning team. The aim of the job creation is sustainability , poverty relief, social and human upliftment and economic upliftment by sowing financially back into the community.
