Bottelary Upliftment

Bottelary Community Development Programme Bottelary Feeding Scheme in Kraaifontein, South Africa, is part of a community development programme which serves more than 200 farm children from 17 different farms in the Kraaifontein area. These farm workers live in harsh conditions, most not being able to provide their families with regular meals, some living without electricity and a lot of them even sleeping without blankets in small shacks. The conditions vary between farms, some are better off than others but almost all of these farm children depend on meals over weekends.

Meals are supplied on Saturdays with fun and educational activities for the children, while doing life skills classes for the adult farm workers and the older children. Some Gr11 & Gr12 pupils from the feeding scheme are  supported with extra classes and supplies they need to finish school. On the last Saturday of each school term, we provide a food hamper to each family that forms part of our feeding scheme to ensure that they have sufficient food supplies during the school holidays, since during these weeks the children do not have the meals that they would normally get in school.

Bottelary Community Development Programme










On Sundays meals are supplied after some singing, scripture reading and ball games took place. While their basic needs are met, the people learn about God’s love for them.

Bottelary Community Development Programme Throughout the year special projects and programmes are run.

  • Warm Winter Project” which supplied the community with blankets for the winter.
  • Words for Life Programme” a literacy programme that teaches illiterate adults (who have not finished school, or who had no schooling) to read, write and basic life skills.
  • Christmas Shoe Project” to collect and distribute shoe boxes filled with toiletries, stationary, biscuits and sweets and small gifts to be distributed during Christmas.
