Since it started in 1988 thousands of children have passed through the doors of a little pre-school in Cape Town that existed to serve working families who couldn’t afford day-care. At God’s Little Lighthouse, children from marginalised communities – Masiphumelele and Ocean View – have been loved, fed, cared for and encouraged to learn and grow.
Sadly, Pam Keightley, the driving force behind the school, passed away in July. The pre-school and after care centre is set to close its doors at the end of 2019.
Victory Church Cape Town has had an offer accepted to buy the property on which God’s Little Lighthouse operated. The vision is to open a new not-for-profit pre-school in its place and provide a familiar, safe space to continue to care for the children. But we also plan for immeasurably more:
- Enabling children’s spiritual, emotional, physical and academic growth
- Providing a nurturing environment with caring, loving and qualified teachers
- Inspiring children to dream and believe they can achieve anything!
Our goal is to raise three million rand (R3 000 000 or £175 000 or $215 000) to enable the launch of Victory Kids Pre-School in January 2020.
