Sarfat Community Projects is an independent, non-profit organisation with the purpose of providing an extensive community service through development projects.
It is registered both as a non-profit organisation (004-407 NPO) and public benefit organisation (PBO 930005488).
Sarfat Community Projects was established in 1993 by community and church leaders from the northern suburbs of the Cape Town Metro pole. In the first few years the organization concentrated on entrepreneurial development. A number of unemployed people were assisted in becoming self-employed entrepreneurs, several of whose businesses have grown to substantial home businesses (e.g. a nursery and bakery).
In 1996 a delegation of church leaders in Bloekombos contacted Sarfat for assistance in development. The pastors felt a great responsibility towards the needs of their community. From then the work of Sarfat focused more on community development – helping people to help themselves.
As partners in Christ we work together in love to unlock and develop our God given potential.
