Additional Partner Organisations
NewDay has a vision of an Africa where people have true hope, where they meet their needs from their own resources, and where suffering and deprivation are rare.
In contributing towards the attainment of this vision, NewDay was formed as a nonprofit organisation in 2003 to strengthen and increase responses to suffering and poverty in Africa.
Its aim is to:
* help organisations that are responding to increase their impact through the implementation of sound organisational methods;
* encourage more Christians and churches to respond appropriately to the causes and effects of suffering and poverty; and
* facilitate collaboration to increase the reach and effectiveness of those who are responding.
New Day needs support in the following waysGive time
To volunteer to do event management for one (or all!) of the following NewDay events for Christians in social ministry:
- quarterly breakfasts;
- twice a year for one-day retreats;
- three times a year for afternoon information sessions; and
- twice a year for our World Café dialogues.
This would involve getting invites out, RSVPs, venue booking and setup, registration and evaluation forms on the day, etc.
- for upcoming events, for the work of the NewDay team, for people and organisations that we are working with, and generally for transformation in Africa. This may be done individually, via email and phone contact, or by joining our prayer meetings.Financial support
- a fair amount of our work is not invoiced to anyone, and other times we charge below break-even rates in order to assist people who cannot pay the full price. Anyone who feels led to do so may donate via our website at www.newday.org.za, email Theresa@newday.org.za or phone 021 7617807.Give skills
People with extensive organisational management experience and wisdom (in any field e.g. finance, IT, HR, governance, etc) can volunteer from time to time in workshops, training sessions, material development, mentoring, etc. It is not necessary to have experience in the non-profit sector.Give goods

We are praying for the expansion of our team from four to eight by early in the new year. Things are getting very busy and the vision we have had for our organisation since the start is starting to become a reality. We have identified the positions and skills required - we now need the right people and sufficient advance funding to make them job offers.
Poverty, unemployment and addiction are causing welfare organisations to be swamped with cases of children in crisis. Places of safety are getting fuller and fuller; children are remaining in children’s homes for long periods of time.
It is estimated by Safeline (a child abuse centre in Cape Town) that 1 in 3 South African girls are sexually abused before the age of 18. In February 2006 the Cape Times estimated that between 9% and 12% of our children will be AIDS orphans by 2015.
Arise is an emerging Christian ministry initiated by St. Stephens Bible Church. Arise invites churches across Cape Town to partner in their ministry. If you would like to find out how you can provide practical support - whether it’s through fostering/adoption, emergency care, or helping current foster parents - please contact Debbie Cannon: 021 683 4945.What are the different roles in caring for vulnerable children?
