Common Good (www.commongood.org.za) began as a ministry of Common Ground Church that was started to help address some of the long-standing issues of injustice in Cape Town. The primary areas of focus are Employment, Education and Early Childhood Development. There are teams that work in each of these areas, and the common goal is to see communities transformed through the gospel and to see hope restored and poverty reduced.
We also play a supporting role in Unakho Children's Home run by Pastor Julius Bonani and his wife Irene. They provide love and care for 30+ children in Barcelona, part of the township of Gugulethu in Cape Town. We help with holiday clubs, a garden, homework assistance and financial support.
South Africa is an amazing country filled with incredible diversity. Our desire is to join with the local church to facilitate a movement of the gospel that engages poverty and inequality in a way that makes Jesus known and worshipped.
