WELCOME TO LIFT
LIFT is a non-profit organisation founded in 2016 to build human dignity by creating jobs, teaching life skills, assisting people with access to health and food security
by providing practical support which allows them to build their own future.
SOME OF OUR PROJECTS
There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.
LIFT Community Development together with Moreletapark Congregation and Jackie Botha of the Informal Settlements Forum (ISF) held 8 Food Drives during the course of the lockdown for Woodlane Village. It has been a miracle to be able to do 10 food drives over the course of 2 ½ months with 1800 food packets being distributed to every shack owner every time.
STREET MEDICINE PROJECT
The Woodlane Village clinic was established in February 2017 in cooperation with the University of Pretoria as part of their Community Oriented Primary Care project (COPC). The clinic services include: Basic medical care | Family planning | HIV testing and counselling and much more.
WOMEN’S SUPPORT GROUP
Domestic violence is a big challenge for women living in Woodlane Village. A weekly support group is offered to these women. Seven sessions over the course of seven weeks are presented to a group of 12 women at a time promoting awareness and information on various kinds of issues.
