This year, CAST is excited to shine a light on our youth development programmes for young women aged between 12 – 18 years old. With your help, we will be raising funds to help our partner churches form communities where girls can thrive, build their resilience and combat gender-based violence.
A donation of R150 per girl will fund their participation in our girls’ conferences, sport, and discipleship programmes for 2020.
Each donor will receive a beautiful #IAm Christmas decoration and card decorated by the girls in our programmes, as well as your piece of the puzzle to make up a picture symbolising Ubuhle Bembokodo – “the strength and beauty of a woman”

Thanks to everyone who got involved, CAST’s first ever Girls’ Camp, Ubuhle Bembokodo, was a huge success! The amount of support we received for this camp was incredible, and all of your prayers, encouraging words and donations are so appreciated.
We had 40 girls and 16 leaders attend camp this year, many of whom had never been to a camp before. Activities included Bible studies, splatter painting, boot camp at the beach and an obstacle course where girls overcame their fears.
We also had talks and activities around identity where they expressed their likes, dislikes, and relationships whether it be with God, family and friends, as well as their hopes. In addition, campers discussed the camp theme: the beauty and strength of a woman.
We believe it is so important for young girls to come together, support each other and grow together in Christ. We cannot thank you enough for helping us give these girls an opportunity to do just that.
Our organisation depends on amazing people like you who truly believe in making a positive difference in the communities of KwaZulu-Natal. You are helping us to move beyond charity to transform communities and further the Kingdom of God!
Thank you again!
