Support Neighbours Education Fund

Neighbours is an intentional Christian community that stands in solidarity with the residents of Hillbrow and other communities deeply impacted by poverty, inequality and injustice around South Africa. We want to become good friends to our neighbours and good neighbours to our friends.

We have a number of children that we help with their education, like Gugu pictured above (Actually you can read Gugu’s remarkable story here ). Please will you consider contributing to our education fund so we can keep these children excelling.

Watch this short little video about Iminam and her dream.

Please also email us if you would like to support a child in this area. We would love to keep you up to date with how they are doing and what you can do beyond financial support to help them achieve their dreams.
