COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

The hub for our efforts in the Karoo region is the Richmond Community Center. The Community Center houses a soup kitchen, a children's library, recreational facilities and our health and education offices. From this hub, our dedicated staff orchestrate outreach efforts to the youth in the local community and in the neighboring communities. Our efforts in Richmond and around the Karoo convey community pride and respect for all.
