Our dream is a society that cares for every person.

​We can help make that happen by serving organisations that care for children: empowering care for orphans, vulnerable children and youth.

Non-profits and civil service organisations that care for children need the heart for community outreach while operating with the professionalism of a business, often having to meet the same performance and reporting requirements with a much smaller budget.

The James 1:27 Trust offers services for these organisations to help them operate professionally and efficiently without the administrative headache--freeing them to focus on the things that they and their funders are passionate about.

Below we briefly describe the three major things we do for non-profits that care for children. Contact us to learn how you can help.

   Agency Services

Financial management is the bane of many non-profit organisations. Their managers may be passionate about the services they provide in their communities, but end up spending much of their time writing reports for funders or government agencies.

Few organisations have the resources to employ a full-time accountant, and rely on volunteers or staff with limited training. As a result, the finances often end up neglected.

The James 1:27 Trust fills this void with its agency services. Financial management, based on Sage One, helps organisations demonstrate integrity and reliable service delivery while paying a fraction of the cost of a full-time chartered accountant. The Trust is able relieve some of the administrative burden like payroll, accounting, and annual bookkeeping, allowing organisations to focus their energy on the work they and their funders are passionate about.

   Social Market: engaging with donors

Thousands of ordinary people want to give back—-to let their resources make a difference. How can they know which organisations are honest and doing good work? Where does one even begin looking?

The James 1:27 Trust stands in the gap between the resourced and the vulnerable. We provide visibility for credible organisations who are serving their own communities at the Social Market.

The Social Market is a "crowdfunding" web space where would-be donors and trustworthy civil society organisations can find each other, to the benefit of children and families in our most vulnerable communities.

   Care Management

How can civil society organisations coordinate budgets against projected income, plan their inventory and service delivery, and measure the quality and impact of what they do? At the James 1:27 Trust, we believe that whoever is serving our nation’s children deserves the best planning and management tools because of the eternal value of our children.

The Trust has partnered with Soweto Care Systems, a case management platform built with non-profits and social work organisations in mind. Using Soweto Care System supported by the James 1:27 Trust, organisations will be able to plan holistic care for children and their families, line up activities against budgets, track completion of tasks and service delivery, and use powerful reporting tools for monitoring and evaluation as well as reporting against national and international requirements.
