Heart for a Child

Life Community Services focuses on meeting children in a holistic way, through the love of Jesus, education and food. Sometime the work can be overwhelming, but a question could shed light on this. How does someone eat an elephant? The answer, so simple, one bite at a time. This is something humourous, yet it still highlights such a very practical principle of achieving big vision with achievable steps.

Today, know that you are called by God, you are chosen to love the one. Whether that one is someone in your neighbourhood, or a child in George, South Africa. Make a decision today to live out what God has called us too, to love our neighbour. As each of us, choose to love our one, we will begin to see our communities and world change for Jesus.

Community-Focussed Outreach

Community-Focussed Outreach

We believe in working at the very heart of the communities that we serve. That is why we have strategically positioned centres in 8 of the area’s neediest communities. From here, we provide children with educational support, ministry and a meal every day.



In South Africa, many children are failed by an overstretched education system. This often leads to them either failing to achieve the necessary grades to progress or dropping out of school altogether. Our Bible-based education programmes ensure children get the best possible start in life.

Sustainable Development

Sustainable Development

We have developed a number of programmes to tackle the alarmingly high levels of youth unemployment in the area. These include life skills training and a job creation scheme called ISIPHO.
