Development NPC

Transforming lives and communities from the inside out

Beulah Africa Development Non Profit Company (NPC) is closely associated with Beulah Africa (Pty) Ltd and aims at bringing practical community-based solutions to Africa’s socio-economic development challenges. We apply ourselves to changing lives and transforming communities in Africa through education, transformation villages and holistic community development initiatives.

Education

Based on Old Mutual estimates, the costs of education per child from Grade R through to tertiary graduation is just under R1 million for public school tuition or R2,2 million for private school tuition (in nominal terms). Unfortunately many children, especially those from rural communities, do not have the means to obtain their dream of education. In the latest Stats SA Household Survey Report it is said that for 33% of South African individuals (aged 5-24), a lack of money was the main reason for them not attending an educational institution.

“Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education” Marthin Luther King Jr. 

“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

In an effort to address this issue, the Beulah Africa Development NPC Bursary Fund was officially launched in 2015. We believe education is the best method to break the cycle of poverty, not only for the individual, but also for his/her whole family. The Bursary Fund therefore supports under-privileged, but well deserving, individuals. Our aim is to help promising university students through financial, social, and spiritual support and providing ongoing mentoring and personal coaching to the bursaries students. Beulah Africa Development NPC wants to be part of the launching of the future leaders who will change and transform Africa and unlock opportunities for generations to come. Our current educational projects are:

  • Beulah Africa Bursary Fund, South Africa
  • TEAMBeulah adventure and sports fundraising events, South Africa
  • GF4GF Bursary Fund

We invite you to get involved by sponsoring a student, supporting one of our fundraising events, or by giving up your time to help mentor these students.

Transformation Villages

Africa’s developmental needs are vast and greatly intertwined. While most companies and organisations engage and invest in isolated projects, Beulah Africa Development NPC understands that the best way to ensure a lasting impact is to invest in, what we call, community transformation villages. Such “villages” serve as catalysts to unlock pockets of potential within communities by stimulating and facilitating integrated holistic change over a period of time. This is done by means of faith-based orphan care, education, skills development, health care, agriculture, job creation and enterprise development.

Beulah Africa Development NPC has already adopted two holistic community transformation villages as primarily projects and is continuously looking for opportunities to start and grow new villages. We currently support the following villages:

  • GF4GF Palms, Northern Cape (pieter @gf4gfcenters .co.za)
  • GF4GF Willows, Free State (willows @gf4gfcenters .co.za)
  • ROC Foundation, Free State (info @rocfoundation.co.za)

Agricultural and Micro Farming Training

Beulah Africa Development NPC and Amos Agrimin have taken hands to train, development and empower micro farmers through a model that works. Our model is not designed to see how many new farmers can be established, but rather to see how successfully we can help establish new farmers.

The Abangani initiative looks at both practical and theoretical training and personal empowerment as a whole. There is a big difference between “developing the land for the people” and developing the people for the land” and although we believe both these are important, the former will never succeed without the latter. Therefore we believe in programmes where academic knowledge, practical skills, moral values and personal talents are all taken into account. We work towards training and empowering agriculturalists with the necessary integrity and skills to feed their own families and successfully run agricultural enterprises.

To successfully establish new farmers in this way, our model includes the following:

  • The establishment of GF4GF centres in rural communities
  • Selecting small groups of high potential candidates from the surrounding areas
  • Providing theoretical and practical training (accredited and non-accredited)
  • Additional personal and business mentoring
