Who We Are

A uniquely positioned Christian ministry in Cape Town and East London, South Africa established in the year 2000 through the grassroots efforts of a local church. In the 21 years since its establishment, Living Hope has grown and matured from a fledgling local church ministry to a complex, multi-faceted organization that employs over 200 staff, mobilizes hundreds of volunteers per year and now reaches over 100,000 clients annually.  We employ locals to serve locals through responsive programs in under-resourced, under-served communities.  With a proven track record of over 20 years of effective and sustainable achievements across 8 geographic locations, we remain at the forefront of cutting edge interventions in Breaking the Despair of poverty and disease, and are widely accredited.

Our Vision

We seek to reach people for Christ, Bringing Hope and Breaking the Despair of poverty and disease.
