ACTS (A Centre That Serves) has been a catalyst for change in semi-rural communities since 2009. With a vision of seeing communities transition from being caught in the poverty cycle to being self sustainable, ACTS has focused its efforts in the Nsimbini and Ezimangweni communities on the Upper South Coast of KZN.
ACTS mission is to be a catalyst for impoverished communities to help themselves. It does this by seeking out grassroots organizations that are already doing something to help their local community, and partners with them providing practical support and capacity building. The rationale for this is that people who are already doing something (albeit small), have a high level of ownership and commitment to their local community and are seen as local leaders by the people they serve. In reality, most of them do so for years without receiving any financial reward. They are the real heroes of this story.
From its onset ACTS has prioritized supporting projects involved in Early Childhood Development (ECD), Food Security, Health, Youth Development, Project Leadership Development and Income generation.
