Healing Earth Foundation Partners with Young in Prison

Young in Prison South Africa (YiPSA) is a non-profit organisation that offers a holistic programme that seeks to prepare children and youth in conflict with the law in making the transition from incarceration back into society through imparting life skills for behaviour change, offering skills development for effective reintegration, and reducing reoffending.

YiPSA uses a unique methodology of teaching life skills using creative and performing arts, sports and literacy. It looks at rehabilitation holistically from the perspective of the individual, community and institution, developing the skills of young offenders and ex-offenders so that they are empowered to advocate for issues that affect their development and enable them to actively and positively engage in society.

We are thrilled to begin rolling out the Healing Earth Foundation‘s self-development programs at the centre on Friday. Watch this space for more…

Healing Earth Foundation Partners with Marsh Memorial Homes

We are excited to announce the Healing Earth Foundation‘s new partnership with Marsh Memorial Homes, a residential care facility based in Rondebosch, Cape Town, providing a safe haven for around 60 children at risk.

Established by the Revered E.T. Marsh in 1901, MMH initially catered only for orphans. It has since evolved to become a multi-cultural facility,catering for children whose homes are beset with financial difficulties, drug/alcohol problems or physical abuse, and who have suffered emotional trauma as a result. Far from institutionalising the children, MMH has also pioneered a family support service model – to address the issues at source and facilitate the reuniting of children with their families.

Marsh Memorial Homes strives tooffer holistic care in the form of various youth development programmes, thus ensuring the emotional, physical, spiritual and educational well being of our children. Their overall objective is to provide a loving and caring home in which children at risk can be nurtured, counseled and guided towards being reunited with their families and their communities.

We look forward to conducting Healing Earth Foundation workshops with the children! Watch this space for more…

Healing Earth Foundation Partners with Carehaven Centre for Abused Women and Their Children

We are honoured to be able to serve Carehaven Centre for Abused Women and Their Children in Athlone.

Domestic abuse affects many women in South Africa. One in every four women is a victim of domestic violence, and every six hours a woman is killed by her intimate partner. Many women fall into a cycle of abuse, moving from one destructive situation to another. Abuse impacts on every aspect of a women’s life, destroyed self esteem. The Salvation Army provides several shelters for abused women and their children and an opportunity for them to find healing and learn skills that will empower them to cope as self-reliant members of society.

Carehaven offers sanctuary and short-term housing to up to 60 women who are victims of domestic abuse and their children. Although a strong Christian emphasis in maintained, women of all races and creeds are embraced, and no one is ever turned away due to lack of money.

In order to break the cycle of abuse, the Carehaven programme of support and empowerment focuses on the whole person to bring healing and help her to cope with future problems more effectively. To date, Carehaven has helped over 5 000 women and children. Carehaven provides safety, professional counselling, support groups/workshops, access to medical care and legal advice, HIV/Aids counselling and training, day care services for children, life skills and parenting training, development of practical subjects, spiritual encouragement and support, and love and care.

We look forward to contributing our weekly workshops to this program.
