Today we said goodbye to a wonderful group of volunteers and interns who are leaving us over the next few days. They have passionately served Beautiful Gate with their talents whether as social work students, in our after school programme, working on marketing or in our cafe.
Vaughan Stannard, Director of Beautiful Gate expressed his appreciation. "A special thank you to our wonderful volunteers from home and abroad for their faithful service! Bless you Margje, Roxanne, Yalelwa, Phelokhazi, Nosimphiwe and Esther for being part of the team and all your hard work. We will miss you!"
We are often looking for new volunteers and currently have vacancies for Tutors (Maths, Science and Accounting especially) for our expanding high school tutoring programme, We also have vacancies for our primary school After School clubs. Find out more here or email firstname.lastname@example.org
On 16th June 2015, Youth gathered at Beautiful Gate to commemorate the Soweto youth uprising on 16 June 1976.
Beautiful Gate, in partnership with SRC leadership from the College of Cape Town, Amy Biehl Foundation, City of Cape Town and New Africa Development Corporation coordinated a youth programme which included sport, dance, and debate. The main idea, was to encourage young people to stand up for something and to have hope.
As Sonwabile Dwangu, Manager of the Youth Resource Centre said "The youth of that generation had a purpose. And we want to encourage the youth of today to see their own purpose. To get more education, to play a role in developing their communities and to take their futures' seriously."
Welcome to a window into the lives and issues facing children in the Crossroads community on the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa. Most of these stories centre around the children and families we work with at Beautiful Gate South Africa, a Christian non-profit organisation whose mission is to show God's love as we care for and protect children, empower and preserve families and mobilise our community to do the same.
