WHO ARE THE CHANGE MAKERS

​Our History
We are a project of Kibbutz El-Shammah. The Kibbutz was established in 1993 out of the New Life Gang Project, to uplift the Roodewal community after years of gang warfare. By 2011 gangsterism again became rife and a new launch sprang to life to help gangsters and drug addicts: The Change Maker Program!

​What is our aim?
The Change Maker Program aims to address current gang related issues and transform the men who come out of gangs and drugs, through spiritual, emotional and physical development, so that they can live meaningful lives and contribute back to the greater Worcester society.

Problem statement
Worcester has one of the highest crime rates in the Western Cape and most of these crimes are gang- and drug related.

​VISION

To prepare a way for men to break free from the stronghold of gangs and drugs, and for them to find their God-given purpose and meaning to life.

​OUR MANDATE

Our mandate is to make ready a people prepared for the Lord (Luke 1:17)
