For the past 11 years, Justice & Mercy International has been partnering with Living Hope, an organization based in Cape Town, South Africa. We have sent many teams to work in this beloved small community just outside Cape Town called Red Hill.
For the past year or so, we have been evaluating what it would look like to deepen our ministry there and serve the people of Red Hill in an even more meaningful way. After lots of prayer, discussion with staff in Cape Town, and planning, we’ve decided to launch the Red Hill Hope Scholarship
This program will be focused on the first grade class living in Red Hill. This age is a pivotal time in a child’s life because this is when they are required to have a uniform and other school supplies and begin going to school full-time. Many of the families in Red Hill simply do not have the means to purchase uniforms, meaning their kids are not allowed to attend school.
JMI needs to raise $15,000 each calendar year to make this life-changing program happen. This is only 25 people giving $50/month for a year. Or 75 people giving one time annual gifts of $200.
This scholarship fund provides a school uniform, school supplies, a backpack, and bi-weekly Life Skills programming in the community. It also provides ongoing support from Living Hope staff and necessities throughout the year. By giving to this scholarship, you are providing education, dignity, and hope for a child in Red Hill.
