Prochorus Somerset West

Stable Ministries was founded in the Strand townships by Pastor Morris Van Zyl in 2003 for a group of Zimbabwean Christians who worked in his construction company, Van Zyl Builders. He bought a double stand in Nomzamo,Somerset West on which they eventually, after a lot of resistance from the community committee, built a church in 2010. The women in the church were looking for employment opportunities for themselves and started looking after babies at home. They identified the need for a Christian crèche in the community and Morris started it in the church-building with 6 children. When Morris passed away at the end of 2012 in a tragic work accident, Shofar Somerset West stepped in and took up his legacy. By then the crèche catered for 15 children. Kibwe Kids(sister NGOto Prochorus ) bought the property to ensure the continuation of the work started on the property.Prochorus was approached in 2013 and a donor, Secure Data erected two wooden structures (18m2 & 27m2) as permanent homes for the expanding crèche. The crèche caters for up to 25 children between the ages of 4 months and 6 years, on a daily basis with two full-time teachers looking after them from 7am to 6pm. The structures are used for educational purposes when outreaches are done in the community. Gerard Ter Haar is the liaison person for the growing Prochorus Somerset West.
