Mother and Baby

Did you know…?

  • 1 in 4 youth we teach are orphaned and at risk.
  • 41% of all rapes in South Africa occur to children 12 years and under.
  • Tradition states that a man “owns” anyone to whom he provides resources.
  • Only 1 in 25 rape victims report to authorities.
  • South Africa ranks highest in the world for rape.
  • This accounts for a high percentage of HIV and teen pregnancies.
  • Abortion is often the choice.
  • Illegal abortion occurs for more than 1 in 2 girls, often with devastating results.

These statistics are heart-breaking, but at Ignite South Africa we are purposing to change them through an incredible team of staff and volunteers.  Together, we are empowering leaders for life, and making a tremendous impact.

Did you know…?

  • That our Pregnancy Center Helpline opened this year – the FIRST in the Free State!
  • Posters are going up in Qwa Qwa offering hope and help.
  • We’ve received a low interest loan and purchased the House of Refuge, a home to pregnant, orphaned teens.
  • Prepping and furnishing of the House has started.
  • Two women have experienced healing through our first abortion recovery retreat.
  • Five mothers have received support and five babies have been saved.

We praise God for these incredible testimonies and for His provision thus far.  But as we shared at our recent Gala event, even more is needed.  More trust, more faith, more prayer, and more people to sow into this incredible work.

Can you help…?

  • $45,000 is needed to retire the loan on the House of Refuge as quickly as possible.
  • Additional monthly givers are needed to ensure that we can meet operating costs prior to bringing in our first girls.
  • Advocates are needed to raise awareness and expand our partnership base.
  • And of course, prayer warriors are needed as well!

Please pray about the role the Lord is inviting you to play.  To sow financially, please use this link.

Thank you for your love, prayers and support!
