Annual Report 2019


As you read this report, we trust that you will be freshly inspired by all that has been achieved in the past twelve months to enable positive and lasting change in thousands of lives across our city and beyond.

  • Our Early Life programme launched Sikunye, a national initiative that is gaining momentum as they activate local churches to play their part in giving South Africa’s children a strong start in life.
  • The Education team added Boundary Primary to Common Good’s network of Collaboration Schools, now serving 1861 learners in Bonteheuwel and Imizamo Yethu (Hout Bay). At Disa Primary, we saw the fruit of our partnership when the school achieved their highest ever systemic results at the end of 2019.
  • At The Zanokhanyo Network, over 700 unemployed people participated in work readiness classes and 634 of our graduates went on to find connections to meaningful work or study opportunities. We also laid the groundwork for a replication model that will enable us to reach even more, further afield with this transformative training.
  • The Congregational Support Team had a highly productive year, writing and curating content to guide our thinking and response to many topical justice issues.
