The Joshua Project, a faith-based organisation (FBO) in Jeffreys Bay, is a safe haven for vulnerable children at risk and for children living on the street. The project also offers education and skills development services for youth and adults. Mainstream SA has invested in The Joshua Project focusing on their education services by providing new computers, software and laser printer for the ABET programme.
Mainstream SA has also funded the purchase and installation of an energy efficient heat pump with a 200 litre geyser to provide environmentally friendly hot water heating to the building.
Erna Tolkamp, Project Manager at The Joshua Project commented ‘With the addition of these computers, we will be able to increase our capacity to assist a maximum of 90 learners per day. The outcome of this grant is that the Joshua Project will be able to make a huge difference in a growing number of people living in our community to gain the education they need, allowing them an opportunity of a good future ahead’.
