“Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed.” Psalm 82:3


Children of Promise (Isithembiso) is an All Nations ministry that works in Masiphumelele township. We are a ministry to vulnerable children and families. We reach out to those in the most desperate and hopeless circumstances, such as, child headed households, orphans, children living with a dying parent, and neglected children.

Our mission is to love and care for the vulnerable in practical ways. We mentor, advocate, help in crisis, and assist with meeting basic needs, such as food, clothes, proper shelter and school uniforms. Our biggest passion is that the least of these will be leading their generation in following Jesus with transformed lives. Discipleship and creating a community of Jesus followers is foundational to all that we do.

Children of Promise cares for vulnerable children and their families in Masiphumelele, a community south of Cape Town, South Africa.  We assist with the practical needs of children whose parents have died or whose remaining parent is too ill to care for them.  Volunteers mentor sponsored children to give encouragement, assess needs, and provide spiritual discipleship.

We aim to see every child grow to know God and to become who God created him or her to be. We aim to empower and advocate for these children and their families through education, job skills training, and more.
