ABOUT GOEDGEDACHT TRUST
Managed by a board of trustees, the Goedgedacht Trust was established in 1993 to contribute to the transformation of disadvantaged rural communities in the West Coast region of the Western Cape. To meet the challenges faced by rural communities, the Trust developed and implemented a creative and sustainable flagship, Path Onto Prosperity (POP) Program, catering to the needs of children at different stages of their lives, starting with the first 1 000 days until adulthood.
We are committed to creating healthy and thriving communities, but we can't do this alone. By donating, you are helping us to continue giving hope to rural children living in poverty in South Africa.
Your monthly donation will empower us to do even more! Helping to build happy communities takes time and commitment, but by donating to us monthly you are strengthening us in our efforts and joining us on this important journey.
LEAVE A LEGACY
No matter how big or small, when you leave a donation to Goedgedacht in your Will, you are providing hope to future generations. Your legacy will live on through the hope and bright futures that our projects provide rural children.
