    HOW IT WORKS

    To facilitate approach in development of the whole man to maturity spiritually, psychologically socially and physically. To equip communities through the world of God to encourage, love help and support them through daily challenges.

    Difference in Communities:
    A Community can be defined as a group of people who share similar needs and wants. After apartheid ended in 1994, the new government of South Africa sought to provide for basic needs such as running water, electricity, housing and infrastructure for hospitals, police and schools to all communities.

    This has been a slow process and although much has been accomplished, there are unfortunately still communities in South Africa that lack this basis services. As a result, many communities have realized that it is up to them to take the initiative and provide for their own needs.

    This got hand with the policy of Masakane and sustainable development. The Department of Education has joined the slogan “It takes a village to raise a child” All the people within the community should work together for the greater good of the whole community.

    A society consists of communities and the needs of each community will change according to time and circumstances. A community lives together in one area and shares common characteristics and values. It can be made up of many units, schools, age groups, cultural groups and professional groups.

    It is interesting to look at the reason why different areas have developed. Towns and cities tend together to grow at a phenomenal rate as the needs and wants of people grow. Often the original reason for existence of a place is forgotten as it changes. Reasons for establishment of towns can vary from trade Harbour and industry to mining, education and natural resources.

    A good example is the city of Durban which was started with discovery of establishing Harbours which now has grown to establishing another big Harbour in Richards Bay where most countries are able to transport through the sea. Fortune seekers from all over the world came to trade in South Africa, Durban. These people had wants which needed to be satisfied and as a result, hotels, shops schools and many other buildings sprang up. There were now jobs and people flocked to the area.
    Standard of Living and Poverty
    The standard of living refers to the quantity of goods and service that a household (or an individual) has available for Consumption Poverty – is when the goods and service available to households is less than what is needed to satisfy their basic needs for food, clothing and shelter. These needs are usually expressed in terms of income (money). This income is known as the poverty income. Poverty income varies according to the size of households – the larger the households - the larger the income needs its members out of Poverty.

    The poverty income level in South Africa ranges from R551 per month for one person to R2349.00 per month for a household of eight to ten people. Poverty happens in all countries of the world but is worse in the developing countries of Africa. Poverty in KwaZulu Natal is estimated to be 53, 6%.
    The Effect of Apartheid Economic Policies
    South Africa’s colonial past the main reason for the policies and canes that were introduced After Union in 1910. These policies and laws become generally known as “apartheid”. Apartheid was the policies and practices of separateness. This means that it deliberately kept white people living apart from their black compatriots (fellow citizens). It ensures that only white people could do skilled and well-paid work and do business anywhere in the country.

    The result was that most black people in the country were politically excluded from making decision that affected their lives. They were for instance not allowed to vote for a national government.
    Redress of Socio-Economic
    When the democratic government was elected in 1994, their first job was to change wrong doings of apartheid rule and improve the lives of the millions of poor people living in our country.

    The efforts of the government can be divided into two areas:
  • Economic development and growth policies.
  • Specific redress actions.


  • Development and Growth Policies
    These policies are to ensure that the socio-economic imbalances of the past do not continue.

    The development Policy is known as the Reconstruction and Development Programme (RDP). Its main aim is to invest in people long-term development and reducing poverty can best be achieved by empowering people to take care of their own needs and aspirations.
    The Six (6) Aims of the RDP
