Our Flashpoint program is a needed help for many schools  

After an introductory school assembly last year, we received repeated invitations from the Principal to schedule our classes.  The primary reason was a concern about the emotional well-being of the students. She believes our program will help.

You see, this school is in a very remote area of Qwa Qwa with no form of recreational activities for the students.  In fact, due to their location and size, they shared that it is rare any organization visit them to offer support or services.

One of the teachers voiced concern as well, sharing a recent incident in which they found students engaged in sexual activities inside the school toilets.  One of the children is now pregnant.  

Though the toilets are now patrolled and teachers involved, they state they need more help.

This term we brought our classroom program there.

Our coaches confirmed that what the Principal feared was true for many. Upon introduction of curriculum and explanation that God has a purpose for their lives, students quickly disagreed.

Two students stated that they came to this world by mistake.

One said she is a product of teenage pregnancy (and was named in regards to that mistake).
The second shared that she was raped by her stepfather, and because of that believes her life is also a mistake.

It is these stories that make our work as Ignite South Africa crucial.


Data and testimonies reflect that 
through our program students lives are impacted by truth and changed forever.
That s
tudents begin to understand God has a purpose for them regardless of the past.

We have personally witnessed the lives of students (and families) in previous schools altered forever by HOPE.

Because of that, we look forward to witness the transformation in the lives of students here as we teach in grades 7-9: Living on Purpose, Save Sex, and Break The Silence. 

We can only do this with your prayer support and financial backing.
