Eagle Youth Empowerment is a Walk Thru the Bible-supported Children’s Project
run by Living Hope Tabernacle Church of the Nazarene.
The aftercare programme aims to impact children from Jabulani spiritually, physically and mentally and to support their academics. This has left the community wanting more of the programme.
As a result of the time invested by the facilitators, the programme has been successful in winning children and their families to Christ. According to Pastor Nkosi of Living Hope Tabernacle, “We have also seen a great improvement in the behaviour of the children and even in their academics, in some cases even a total transformation.”
Reaching out to other churches
Eagle Youth Empowerment hosted a Kidz At Heart training event run by Walk Thru the Bible to train the project facilitators. It was a joy to also invite children’s workers from different churches in Soweto to be part of this training – to better equip them to teach the Word of God to children.
In order to meet the needs of impoverished families, Eagle Youth Empowerment runs a feeding scheme every afternoon for 100 children in the programme. They have also assisted some of the most impoverished families with grocery packs.
A recent holiday camp hosted by Eagle Youth Empowerment catered for 90 children where spiritual, mental, physical and psychological activities were presented -as well as providing three full meals a day.
“We are grateful for every child and family that have been impacted by this programme and changed by hearing the Word of God which the volunteers bring.”
