Raising Hope South Africa (NPO 176-282) is all about offering up hope, opportunities, and upliftment to individuals and families impacted by physical and intellectual disabilities and autism. We support both the individuals and their families through a number of different programmes that we offer. These programmes centre around providing assistance to families with food provisions, skills development workshops and resources (see below for a full list of programmes). Our main base, or GrowthPoint is in Durbanville Cape Town, and we are hoping to launch a second GrowthPoint in Melkhoutfontein near Stillbaai (Western Cape), in 2020.
Raising Hope South Africa is a registered PBO with SARS (930064147).
