Seeds of Light projects encompass five main areas of focus

Focus on Girls

The lack of sanitary supplies for girls in rural areas leads to a huge problem of school absenteeism and drop out. Learn what Seeds of Light is doing to address this and find out more about our other girl-focused programs.

Education and Creativity

Seeds of Light runs numerous art classes and educational projects in the Acornhoek area, providing children with much-needed creative stimulation.

Orphans and Vulnerable Children

We offer many programs to help orphans and vulnerable children in rural South Africa, including the Ekurhuleni Center (Place of Peace). This is a unique community-based project dedicated to providing mental, emotional, physical, social and spiritual support to orphans and other disadvantaged children.

Food Security Programs

As hunger is still a significant problem in this impoverished area of rural South Africa, Seeds of Light is involved with many projects to ensure food security for children and their families. Read about our permaculture workshops, food-parcel distribution and school gardens.
