Whether you are an individual, family, organization, church group,or a workplace you can find a way to make a difference.

VOLUNTEER
Nothing is more rewarding than helping others in need.  Giving of your time for just an hour, a day, or even more not only makes a difference in others' lives, but yours as well.  Many blessings are received through volunteering.


Opportunities include:

  • Assist with monthly Mission Yard Sales - held the 2nd Saturday (and Friday before) and last Saturday of each month (with the exception of  December) from 7am-noon. Help is needed weekly for pricing items, sorting, picking up items, and assisting on the days of the sale. Extra hands are always needed the day before yard sales, as well as each morning of the sale.  Any amount of time you can help from one hour or more does make a difference!  ​Our yard sales are none like you've ever seen before!  Items are grouped by like items (kirchen, bathroom, children's clothing & toys, men's clothing & tools, women's clothing, pocket books, etc.)  and set up so items are easily seen.  All proceeds raised from the sales go to provide monthly living assitance for vulnerable and needy children.

  • Help with monthly bake sale!   Volunteers sell sausage biscuits, coffe cake, muffins, bread, candy, cakes, and pies to pay for overhead expenses such as: postage, stationary, electricity, etc.at our monthly yard sales.  This enables us to send 100% of funding to the children in South Africa.                                  Call or email if you or your mission group would like to assist.

“Building Together” project donations:  Ya Bana Village is a God-sized project that has been blessed by donors just like you building together.  Needed are more cluster homes for children; a clinic where local and visiting medical teams can care for the children and community;  a multipurpose pavillion where the children can attend church, as well as other recreational and educational functions; sustainability projects that will help teach the children how to work and raise money for their home; a sports field where they can focus energy in a positive, but competitive way; and a baby home where the very young can receive the much needed care.            
Simply write “Building Together” on your donation. 100% of your gift will go towards this project.


PRAYER

None of the financial and volunteer support will give what the children need if they are not lifted up in prayer. We believe that God answers prayer because we have experienced his amazing provision in this ministry. However, we expect even MORE blessings!


Please consider:  

  1. Praying weekly or even daily for the very special children, volunteers, leaders of the children, their country and city politics, as well as for the Mabopane Foundation.  
  2.  Set up a monthly prayer group for these kids. 
  3.  “Adopt” a child in your Sunday School class or home group so an increased focus on them will be made in group prayers.


 Would you like someone to come speak about the kids to your church, Sunday School, or civic organization?   Contact us atadmin@mabopanekids.org.


God Bless You Abundantly as you support the disadvantaged children of Mabopane!
