List of Projects

 

1. Empower & Uplift

 The best way to reduce poverty is to empower those in need, meaning the poor.

We provide a start up to an unemployed individual, providing him/her with items which need to be resold. Once these items are sold, they need to come back to our charity shop and use the money made from the start up to purchase at a discounted rate in order to resell at a profit. Once they follow this process they would be able to earn a sustainable income. In doing this we believe that we would be giving hope and a step up to those who need it the most.

 

2. Library Project

 We collect reading books throughout the year and distribute to rural areas. We find sponsors to help us buy/build a library using steel cabinets or recycled filing cabinets. We then place them in Underprivileged areas, Orphanages, Old age Homes and schools. We are collecting the following gently used or new storybooks, Text Books & Study Aids. Materials need to be in good condition. Materials will be reviewed by library selectors for possible addition to the rural library's collection. Materials not added to the library's collection will be used towards our school bag project or it will be recycled for paper or donated to other organizations. Regretfully magazines & telephone directories will NOT be accepted. Alternatively, the approximate cost is R100 per book including plastic cover, library card and pocket.

 

3. Angels Of Hope Charity Shop

 Situated at 26 Apiesdoring Street in Heuweloord Centurion, Pretoria. Many people want to feel good by ‘paying it forward’. Our Charity shop allows for this kind of goodwill, while simultaneously contributing positively to society. You can make a huge difference without a hands-on involvement in our projects. Our charity shop provides an opportunity for everyone to purchase quality goods at an affordable price. In order for us to sustain the charity shop, we need the following new or gently used items to be donated to our charity shop on a regular basis. Children’s clothing, shoes all sizes. Unisex adult clothing & shoes all sizes, handbags, suitcases and costume jewellery. These items are cleaned if necessary, sorted, ironed & resold inexpensively to the general public. Everything in the shop is priced at R50 and below. We invite orphanages as well as old age homes to come and choose an outfit free of charge. All profits generated from the sale of these items are used towards various projects of Angels of Hope.

 

4. The Angel Project

We started this project in the hope of promoting, confidence, self-esteem and to instil the importance of community service and the value of giving back. The Angel Project is to assist young ladies who are unable to afford a dress for their matric dinner as well as brides who are financially challenged and come from previously disadvantaged backgrounds. We support them with resources that may not have existed for them otherwise. The Angel Project provides each young lady with a complete outfit of her choice, as well as the use of our hairstylist and make-up artist who will help make her evening as memorable as possible. Help us spread the magic and make a young lady feel like an Angel for a Day by donating your new or gently used items in all sizes and styles. We would appreciate items, such as ball gowns, party dresses, bridesmaid dresses, wedding dresses, eastern wear, bridal lingerie, high heel shoes, costume jewellery, hair accessories, clutch bags, hair spray, makeup etc.

CONCLUSION
We would like to be able to reach more underprivileged communities but due to the lack of funding, we are only able to reach a few. Thank you for taking the time to read through our profile. We are just ordinary people who are trying desperately to make a little difference in the lives of the less fortunate. People who are faced with extraordinary challenges every day of their lives. We as well as our recipients would be very grateful if you or your organisation would be able to assist us in our humble efforts.
