Building the future

 The heart of Hillsong Africa Foundation (HAF) is to equip, encourage and uplift those in need. Every day we have the opportunity to make a difference in our own backyard, ultimately building a nation, one person, one family and one community at a time.

We are a non-profit organisation based in South Africa that is passionate about building lives that will build the nation. We do this year-round through weekly programs that we run in different communities across the Western Cape and Gauteng, based out of Hillsong Church South Africa locations.

We believe in building relationships with people and journeying with them to see their lives move forward.

OUR MISSION

It is our mission to help restore families and combat the staggering cycles of poverty, addiction, abuse, and violence in our nation. Our approach is holistic and addresses body, mind, and spirit in order to meet the needs of the whole person and whole family through our various programs. Everything we do is based on our vision:

Building lives that will build the nation.

OUR HISTORY

Hillsong Africa Foundation is the community development arm of Hillsong Church South Africa, born out of a desire to uplift lives and communities across the nation.

The Foundation began with a group of volunteers from Hillsong Church who wanted to help people on the margins of society by providing for their basic needs such as food and shelter. In time, the extensive needs far outweighed the funding capacity of the church, and a separate Foundation was established in 2009.

HAF is a registered Section 18A non-profit organisation. HAF has grown in mission and scope over the years, and is now running a variety of programs in more and more communities across South Africa and beyond into other African countries. In many instances, HAF works alongside existing NPOs and government bodies who are already doing great work in their sphere of influence. Where there is a great fit or opportunitiy, HAF initiates its own programs, such as the Tembaletu School Hall building project and our first ever Innovation Hub in Gugulethu.
