Impact Partners make it possible for us to serve, educate & rescue

Together with the local community, Impact Africa serves, educates and rescues while provoking individuals towards a passionate relationship with Jesus Christ in Johannesburg, South Africa. The challenges facing South Africans cause some in desperate situations to turn to drugs and crime, leading to even bigger social problems, hopelessness, and despair.

A snapshot of the challenges facing South Africans on a daily basis:

  • Everyday three babies are abandoned and left for dead.
  • The unemployment rate is 27.6% – leaving thousands living in poverty and unable to meet their basic needs of food, water, and shelter.
  • Everyday there are 23 suicides.
  • Over 3 million youths; aged 18-24, are not in employment, education, or training.

The challenges facing the country and people of South Africa are devastating, but together; with our local team, you can help change this today by becoming an Impact Partner. Impact Partners support the numerous outreach efforts of Impact Africa through financial investments. As an Impact Partner, you can provide a one-time or recurring gift, which helps extend the reach of Impact Africa by:

  • Providing resources for our Baby Rescue team to conduct their awareness presentations in the local government hospitals and clinics and provide counseling to desperate young mothers.
  • Providing resources to care for rescued babies in our Baby Home until they adopted by their forever family.
  • Providing materials for education to help create a brighter future for children in Africa.
  • Supporting our team of local staff who are working in the field to make a difference within their own communities.

Are you ready to become an Impact Partner today by giving a one-time or recurring investment? Your investment will make a positive and transformative change in the lives of thousands of South Africans. Please reach out to us directly at if you have any questions.
