Grow Peace in Africa seeks to uplift rural communities in South Africa by presenting children and young adults in particular with opportunities to become healthy, self-confident, educated and skillful members of their communities; helping break the cycle of poverty that has long trapped their impoverished communities.
Through our Path Onto Prosperity (POP) programme we cater to the needs of rural children at different stages of their lives, starting with the first 1 000 days until adulthood. Our POP programme provides the health and educational support, comfort and encouragement that is needed for children to stay in school.
Our various POP Youth Centres, located in several rural communities in the Western Cape Province of South Africa, also provide a safe haven where children are able to learn, play and thrive.
You’ll find us under two organisational names: Grow Peace in Africa and The Goedgedacht Trust (located in South Africa), but our identity is one in making The Path Onto Prosperity (POP) possible.
