Helping a community to help themselves
Helping a community to help themselves is about realising people's potential, thereby giving them the skill, tools and confidence to fulfil their potential and work themselves out of poverty. The aim is to create sustainable development in people and their circumstances.
Think differently about your situation
We educate children and adults to start thinking differently about their circumstances and implement change. Every child deserves a dream, every person deserves the chance to know their own worth. Every person needs to feel important and heard.
Passion for people
Eleos has established itself as a well respected NGO. Our love for people and to serve has been the driving force behind all our projects and has carried us through difficult times. All our committee members are closely involved with all our projects and all our staff are professional, caring individuals. We raise our own funds to sustain and oversee our projects. We also review our exciting projects and initiate new projects as the need arrises.
In our ECD, pre-school, two after-school care centres and camps we provide a safe, healthy and positive environment for children to develop and learn. We educate mothers with parental guidance programmes and assist adults with life skills programs.
Obtaining an identity document, compiling a CV, developing existing skills, helping a family work out their budget. These may seem small gestures, but to many families it makes a signaficant difference. Just a bicycle? No, it changed this families life.
