Based in the dangerous crime-ridden area north of Cape Town, the Goal 50 vision is to create and build a team that works to develop a community that respects individuals and offers support and care. They are currently seeking financial support to create a much-needed Day Care Centre as well as expand their current food and shelter provision.
