Two local NPOs have joined forces to focus on youth development in Helderberg. I Can, a project of Kingdom of God Ministries, and the Lead Foundation have collaborated to develop programs focused on helping young people in Strand and Somerset West. It is led by pastors Tammy van Heerden (below) and Lori-Ann Marx (pictured here). Van Heerden is a nursing assistant and senior pastor at Kingdom of God Ministries, while Marx is a therapist and founder of the Lead Foundation. The program, recently launched at an open house in Garden Village, aims to provide assistance in accessing birth certificates, clinic records, physical and mental health therapy and early childhood development activities . The founders have called for volunteers to help with youth games, book readings, food projects, and face painting, among other things. To volunteer or donate to the programme, call Van Heerden on 082 357 6645 or Marx on 067 821 0449.
