The HewLin Compassion NPO Overview
HewLin Compassion is a Cape Town-based NPO that renders services to the most vulnerable people in extremely impoverished circumstances. Since 2011, we worked within communities to help people live a life away from the streets and away from all socio-ills, which negatively affects our society.Our vision: Identify a human need and solve it.
Our mission: To put principles into practice by providing education, leadership, and developmental activities, which promote moral excellence, self-confidence, community support, and positive opportunities for at-risk youth.
Our Core Value System drives us – to believe that: 1) Everyone is Accepted, 2) Community – Build relationships, 3) Commitment – Go back for the one, 4) Empowerment - Every dream matters, 5) Excellence – Do everything that is important with excellence.
Our Programs and Projects. The WonByOne Campaign is our Prevention/ Intervention program among people living on the streets. This program runs from June until August of each year. The Passion Squad skills development program runs from January to June (Phase 1) and continues between August to November with Phase 2. At-risk youth within our community benefits from this.The Dignity Project supports the households our children come from. This project runs throughout the year.The Fitness Squad creates a platform whereby young and old are taught how to be physically, mentally, and physically fit. The Compassion Convention invites the most vulnerable children in desperate need of education and skills development, to be part of this weeklong convention.
