Luthemba Lethu Community Project is a registered Nonprofit Organization. Further, it is also registered by the Tax Exempt Unit of SARS as a Public Benefit Organization and has been approved for purposes of section 18A. It is run by a group of volunteers that is formed in a board that meets regular to be accountable to the members.
“Luthemba Lethu” meaning “Our Hope” is a nonprofit organization started from a place of need.
In 2006 we started reaching out into the Modderbee Correctional Centre and quickly realized that normal outreach programmes were not effectively changing offenders.
So, in 2007 André Roodt, a pastor at Maranatha Community Church then, together with some church members also staff members from Modderbee Correctional Centre and the head of Kempton Park police station, went to Argentina to look at a model operating in certain Correctional Centres that changed the recidivism rate from 50% to 5%.
The Church adopted this model and soon found itself with more than 50 volunteers and full time employees running this program seven days a week within the Modderbee Correctional Centre.
It soon became apparent that a program that only focuses on the Correctional Centre was not enough and in 2011 LLCP added two areas of focus to its operation, namely:
- A high school program with full time life coaches in each school to effect the spiritual climate inside.
- A Community Based Training Facility and local church.
This will assist us in focusing on two areas in the community.
- Crime Prevention through our Schools Programme.
- Rehabilitation through our Correctional Centre and Community Based Training Program.
