Sometimes our light goes out, but it is blown again into instant flame by an encounter with another human being.

- Albert Schweitzer



The Maranatha Trust is a public benefit organisation that facilitates community projects focused on education in the Swartland, especially in rural areas where there are fewer or no facilities available. We do this by assisting community members to work together to address their challenges rather than to wait for help from outside. The people who benefit from a specific project are therefore empowered and encouraged to accept the responsibility of running and maintaining the project and to do so in a sustainable way.

Waar daar liefde en deernis is, daar is God.
Ubi caritas et amor, Deus ibi est.

Where there is compassion and love, there is God.
