Activated magazines as English-teaching aids in South Africa

June Halliday

We’d like to offer special thanks to Activated Ministries for sponsoring the Activated kids magazines to our work here in Pretoria, South Africa! We distributed the beautiful color magazines to the children in our after-school program at Stanza Bopape Community Development Centre and the reception was wonderful.

Opening our home to orphans for Christmas, South Africa

Esther McGinley

It was our 17th Christmas here in Durban, South Africa, and we invited underprivileged children from the area to a Christmas camp. There are so many children waiting to attend these camps: specifically children who have no one else to take them for this special time in the year. I think all of us can agree that Christmas is a time for families to be together, a time we remember year after year – so for these children we became their family.

Sponsored books to Autism schools in Pretoria

Olivier Biard

With Activated Ministries’ help we have been able to give the beautiful “Christmas Long Ago” story book to two special education schools here in Pretoria, South Africa.

UNICA is a school for learners with Autism and is at the forefront of creating greater understanding of the characteristics and challenges of Autism. UNICA provides quality facilities and a world-class learning program to their 220 children, aged 6 to 18.

Sunday School Teacher Training Workshop

Over the last few months we have heard desperate pleas from pastors of small churches in informal settlements in our area, ‘Can you help us start a children’s ministry?’ It became apparent that there is a great need to train Children’s workers. We accepted the challenge and got busy putting together the workshop material. We worked together with Kohen Ministries, who handled the communication with their partner churches as well as provided the venue.
