It has been brought to our attention that some underprivileged people are going without food for 2 to 3 days at a time and the little they can afford to buy is not nourishing food at all. Some of these people are on medication and have to take it on an empty stomach. Among them are pensioners and families with children. There is a great need for us to provide a meal twice a week.
Our vision as an organization is to feed the vulnerable, poverty-stricken impoverished individuals and families within our community. In essence, our mission is to add effective change in our community by consistently improving to serve with character, integrity, and transparency, aiming to uphold the highest level of professionalism and adding honesty to our purpose. Thus we take pride in providing COOKED MEALS to those who are in a less fortunate position.
Our program does however follow procedures as required. A MILLION REASONS TO DO GOOD NPC utilizes a referral-based system where individuals, classified as a priority, are referred by our local hospital and Community Care Workers. As a team, we are well aware of the current state of our community due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It gives us great pleasure to provide nutritional meals not only to those who are referred but also to those who are highly affected by the economic turmoil. Cape Town – ATLANTIS – Western Province.
Funding will enable us to maintain our feeding programs and care for many underprivileged people and assist those who have lost their jobs due to Covid-19 lockdown and are living below the breadline. Funding will prevent many adults and children from suffering malnutrition. It would also benefit these families and individuals who are experiencing food insecurity not only by relieving their hunger but the knowledge that they will receive healthy meals on a regular basis will relieve their emotional anxiety.
Take into consideration that we follow a program where warm meals are distributed to either a specific family or individual for three consecutive weeks. Thereafter we select newly identified less fortunate families or individuals to be appended into the program. Letters, Facebook, and Whatsapp messages received expressing thanks and gratitude on behalf of the communities have touched us deeply, encouraging us in what we do, namely:

A MILLION REASONS TO DO GOOD NPC
While studying Theology Colleen Africa came to realise there was a huge need to help improve the lives and potential of underprivileged individuals. Having worked within different social development channels she could lay the foundation that prepares them to achieve their full potential by providing educational and development programmes.
Colleen teamed up with like-minded individuals who shared her passion and work together to relieve the suffering of vulnerable people who are enduring hardships daily living in conflict situations and are in desperate need of upliftment, positive change and encouragement in their lives. By abiding within organisational protocols which include safety, H.I.V., Aids and children’s rights we can do much to uplift them restoring hope, joy and laughter.
In August of 2019 Colleen Africa founded A MILLION REASONS TO DO GOOD NPC in order to fulfil her dream to create diverse opportunities for youth development that would inspire, motivate and equip young people to achieve their full potential and become successful adults.
