What is Acts of Love

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.

Ongoing Projects

Project NameFrequencyDescription
EducareEvery SaturdayWe provide, on a weekly basis, extra tuition on various core subjects, for orphan children. Additional lessons such as music and bible studies are also offered to the kids. Volunteer as a Maths or English teacher or join the support team that runs operations on the Saturday morning.
Soup KitchenBiweeklyA dedicated team of volunteers provide meals on a biweekly basis to underprivileged women and children in the Olievenhoutbosch area. They also share the gospel and pray for those in need.
Grocery HampersWeekdayGrocery hampers that consist of basic necessities (staple food items) are provided to families that are going through financial difficulty.
Help our GirlsMonthlyDue to the financial status of many girls homes, sanitary pads are a luxury. This means that these girls will miss a week of school every month which adversely affects their education. Donate sanitary pads to keep our girls in school because they deserve to feel comfortable, confident & carefree to learn & thrive!
School OutreachMonthlyOnce a month our team will be visiting a school & giving a motivational talk in morning assembly as well as praying for the students. Sandwiches will be provided for the learners & small gifts of appreciation for the teachers.
