TREE stands for “TRansforming the Educational Environment” and is part of the Doxa Deo Movement’s plan to transform cities to places where God reigns. TREE is Doxa Deo’s answer to making a Christ-centred difference in schools. Doxa Deo Raslouw Campus believes that the answer to city transformation lies with the younger generation as they are the future leaders of South Africa. We are currently involved in Tshwane, Johannesburg, Bloemfontein, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.
HOPE (Help Our People Eat) is our care program for partners that are going through short-term financial challenges. We provide food parcels for families, love and support through prayer and equip them with financial training on how to manage their finances better. You can get involved by donating non-perishable goods or by making a once-off or monthly financial contribution.
Ki-Deo Children’s Home provides a stable home environment for 9 destitute children. They are all traumatized children that were removed from their parents’ care by the legal system. The house is filled with children from different ages (between 5 and 18), and has very much the same structure as a normal family.
The house parents, Hein & Theresa Geldenhuys, provide for all the needs of the children, including social, physical, material and emotional support.
Ki-Deo aims are to provide quality accommodation in a small, family sized unit that doesn’t label the child as an institutionalized child. Ki-Deo also aims to provide health care rendered by medical professionals; therapeutic counseling; schooling; as well as social and cultural activities to the children.
As a dream of Hein & Theresa, the children’s home was started by Doxa Deo in partnership with the AFM Executive Welfare Council. The social services delivered by the church and the social work arm of the Church extend into a practical solution for children placed in foster care by the courts.
The children’s home is based in Lyttelton, Centurion.
