Sponsor a Child for Mandela Day

West View makes a difference in the lives of children living in the Mooiplaas informal settlement through our mission, Ditshego. Help us to get more children off the streets and into Ditshego's school where they receive two cooked meals, education and lots of love.

We have quite a few people who are already sponsoring children and we are extremely grateful for their support, however there are still so many children on the streets.

Help us to get these children into a safe, learning environment by sponsoring or partly sponsoring a child in need. Sponsor a meal for a month or a full sponsorship for a year- Every bit helps!

Ditshego relies heavily on donors and sponsors to deliver its services to the children and the community. In the past we asked for people to give 67 minutes of their time or effort.

This year we are asking that you sponsor our children with multiples of R67 as shown in the table below:

Kairos Prison Ministry

The mission of Kairos Prison Ministry is to bring Christ’s love & forgiveness to all incarcerated individuals, their families & those who work with them, and to assist in the transition of becoming a productive citizen. It affects the lives of prisoners in countless positive ways. Lives have been changed, & former inmates re-enter society as better spouses, parents & employees. Many released prisoners become volunteers, & give back to society. Some start their own ministries, pastor churches, while others run re-entry programs and become mentors.

The following Kairos weekend will be held at Kgosi Mampuru II – Pretoria Female Weekend #18 from 11-14 April 2019

We ask you the Church community to become involved in the following ways; we can’t take Jesus into the prisons without your help. “I was in Prison and You Visited me” Matthew 25:36

•    PRAYER:

The most important component! Pray for the prisoners (residents) the Chaplain, the wardens, the Prison authorities and the Kairos team.


Please visit the following link add your name to a suitable slot on the prayer vigil - we really need and rely on your prayers.


Those of us who have seen the appreciation on the faces of the prisoners realise how much your efforts are appreciated. Home baked biscuits baked with prayer, nourish & delight them spiritually as well as physical. This is an act of love (agape). We need loads of biscuits – approximately 2,000 dozen for one Kairos weekend! Please pack them in ice-cream containers and mark it clearly Kairos and or call me and I will collect it. Last biscuits will be at church Wednesday morning 10h00 on the 10 April 2019


All (18 years & above) are invited to the Closing Ceremony Sunday 14 April at 13:30 FOR 14:00 for of any of the Kairos weekends, during which the residents will share their testimonies of “God’s Special Time’. Only your ID’s (and car keys) are allowed to be taken into Prison, no handbags, etc
