What kind of help is needed for 7 de Laan?

We need prayer!

Reading about 7de Laan, you soon realise – the problems are so big, no one can cope with it alone! And this is absolutely true. That is why we need believers that pray not only with us and for us, but especially for the people of 7de Laan. Prayer can move mountains when nothing seems to be moving on earth. If you are one of those believers let us now – we are happy to inform you about detailed prayer requests.

We need helpers!

Do you believe that Jesus can change 7de Laan and do you have the time, the availability and maybe even some experience to be helping in 7de Laan yourself? Wonderful! Especially for the multipurpose hall we will need a big team of committed helpers. Computer training, homework and remedial assistance, support in the preschool, counselling and prayer as well as medical care are only some of the possibilities for you to volunteer in 7de Laan!

We need donations!

Even though the building and equipment for the multipurpose hall and preschool were sponsored once-off, this does not include the running costs. We want to offer the children and adults high-quality education, courses and workshops. We certainly have the faith for this big endeavour – but not the right number on the bank account yet 🙂

The running costs for the preschool and other programs include among other things:

  • the salary for the educators and assistants as well as their training and seminars (we are happy to report that the Freundeskreis Wakkerstroom has committed to sponsor the teachers’ salaries until July 2018!)
  • groceries (the children receive breakfast and a cooked lunch every day)
  • books, arts and crafts supplies, office supplies, cleaning supplies etc.
  • teaching material for anti-drug courses, marriage guidance, counselling
  • Christmas celebrations etc. for the whole 7de Laan community
