Acts of Love (AOL) is a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) that was born in 2009 out of the “Care” arm of Acts Christian Church to make a difference in our local community. Our aim is to fulfill our vision which is aptly captured in our mission statement “Changing the world…one person at a time through acts of love.
Through our outreach events we are responding to God’s call to care for those in need regardless of race or creed. We aim to not only show compassion and love to hurting people in a time of great distress, but to bring physical support and hope in their hour of greatest need.
Each project that forms part of our calendar year has been carefully chosen to bring joy, hope and love to our community. At the very heart of our organisation is the desire to meet the needs of orphan children and the elderly and as a result Acts of Love holds several ongoing initiatives during the course of the year that benefit these underprivileged individuals. We also believe that education is the key to a bright future and through our Educare initiative we provide tuition to underprivileged children on a weekly basis.
We have a strong focus on meeting the basic needs of those less fortunate in our society which is evident in our Soup Kitchen & Grocery Hamper projects that we have running on an ongoing basis throughout the year.
We have one outreach event per month that varies and these events aim to meet additional needs such as provision of blankets during winter, basic health care in impoverished areas, career guidance & Christmas shoebox gifts.
Join us at any of the outreach events that take place through the year and meet the people impacted by the various projects.
Have teaching experience or a passion for tutoring kids? Then join our team of volunteers that provide tutoring to kids on Saturdays through the Educare program.
Is education your key concern? Then partner with Acts of Love and sponsor an orphan’s tertiary education. Help us pay their university or college fees and provide for their basic necessities.
Help us reach more people by sharing Acts of Love & the work we do with those that are close to you – family, friends, work colleagues and neighbours.
