The Olive Community

Oudemuragie, South Africa

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”

- Nelson Mandela

Together We Can Start a Movement

Our goal is to help the Olive Community kids by giving them access to knowledge. We want to give them the opportunity to go beyond classroom education and to provide them with what they need to teach themselves. We want to get them access to tools like Google and YouTube so that they can learn ‘how to’ do just about anything they can dream of. These kids don’t have computers, phones, transportation, etc. They are lacking the means to learn beyond their current environment.

The Olive Community Speaks

In this short video Delene and Anthony share about the current state of their community and the challenges they are working to overcome.

A Little Bit of Good

“Do your little bit of good where you are; its those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world...

...We are made for goodness. We are made for love. We are made for friendliness. We are made for togetherness. We are made for all of the beautiful things that you and I know. We are made to tell the world that there are no outsiders. All are welcome: black, white, red, yellow, rich, poor, all, all, all. We all belong to this family, this human family, God's family." - Desmond Tutu
