There are powerful moments that can and will change the course of your life. More than a decade ago Tshega’s doors were opened, a commitment to start transforming lives, which brought hope to the community. That commitment has now moved over to trust as year after year Tshega kept keeping the promise to educate, empower and transform. Thousands of lives have been impacted by the sacrifice and obedience of people who saw a need and wanted to make a change.

We work around the school terms in South Africa. So during the holidays, we aren't as busy. These times work very well for volunteers to go and travel around South Africa.

This area is the biggest rural area in South Africa. The province is second poorest in the country and has the biggest wild life variety. The organisation focuses on supporting native vulnerable families in a holistic way in the rain queen Modjadji area.

It is our mission to be a moral and positive example in social services, providing a holistic, well balanced, dynamic service to all our beneficiaries in preparation for the effective functioning in a multi-cultural society whilst following Christ's call in sharing the Gospel with the world through God's wisdom and strength.
