Help build Hope

We need your help to turn around the effects of family breakdown in this nation and build a healthy society, one family at a time, home by home, brick by brick.

The Breakdown of Family

Family breakdown is taking its toll on our nation. The wounds of broken relationships leave scars on everyone involved and its impact reaches deep into our communities.

5,853 children under 17 years of age had parents who were granted a divorce last year.
Just over one-third of marriages end in divorce by a couple’s 25th wedding anniversary.

When the home is no longer a safe haven because we haven’t learnt the basic skills and principles that can make our relationships thrive, the family is under pressure. This generation needs your help.

There is a proven way of hope

By delivering timeless biblical principles for marriage and family life, we’re helping families create an environment within which relationships can flourish. By REACHING families through various platforms and events, we invite them to GROW together and equip some to become GUIDES who impact their corner of the world.
