Angelfriends Charity Initiative
Angelfriends NPO is the initiative of a group of friends who came together in 2008 wanting to make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate in our broader community.
What started out as a small and noble thought has grown into a Non Profit Organisation who contributes towards different charitable organisations on a monthly basis.
Angelfriends aims to establish a network between friends, families and business colleagues, through which the less fortunate can be reached – a network where friends, family and businesses can become involved, either through personal service delivery or financial support.
We have realized that people do want to be involved in community work or fundraising schemes, but don’t necessary have the know how or channels to work through. Ideally through Angelfriends NPO, people will find different ways to become involved. Therefor by taking hands with other charity organizations, linking with individuals who are already operating in certain communities we hope to succeed in reaching communities by ‘networking’ with the right partners.
We want to invite you to use Angelfriends as your channel should you know of any special cases, either financial need, employment opportunities or needs, or goods you want to donate. Help us establish a network of Angelfriends in which we can assist and empower.
"The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity." Francis Maitland Balfour
Angelfriends NPO contributes to various charitable organisations.
Most of our contributions goes to organisations who supports or fits our vision:
"Youth is NOT wasted on the YOUNG!"
It is often said that you cannot choose where you come from, but you can choose where you want to go.
Young children in disadvantaged circumstances don’t always have the privilege of choice especially when it comes to their household, the town they live in, the school they go to, BUT they CAN dream where they want to end up in life and “one day” as grown-ups CHOOSE where they want to go to BUT then get faced with reality.
And REALITY BITES…
A vast number of children in S.A. face the reality of not growing up in a loving and supportive family or don’t enjoy the necessary financial support to make their dreams a reality.
These young children have unspoiled potential, but with limited resources of reaching their full potential and goals.
