We are so excited to introduce you to our three new YDC’s.

Miriam and Jonas are both going to stay until August and Madlen until April. They are currently having orientation and are looking at the different communities and the outreach team in which to work in during their stay.

We are very happy that they are part of the YFC KZN family and wish them all the best for their time in Southafrica. Thank you for choosing us to serve our Lord.

Youth Development Centre – Creativity for Christmas

12/14/17 8:54 AM

Hannes Becker has made a TV with the Children from the Streets in Northdale. The Children drew pictures about the Christmas Story. Hannes then attached them to a long piece of paper and built the TV you see on the first picture. Now he is able to tell and show them what happened around Jesus’ Birth.
Florian Schlienz in the Centre in Mountainrise has created a nativity scene together with the children. After cutting and colouring, Florian used the little figures to tell the Children about the Christmas Story.
Sometimes it doesn’t take much money but Creativity in order to tell the Children about our great Saviour.

Poem written by an Australian Volunteer

We live where we work,
And we work where we live.
Through discussions and chats,
We’re taught how to give.
We’re here for the children,
For their smiles and tears.
Through their laughter and tantrums,
So they overcome their fears.

The sad thing is that there will always be children on the streets. Struggles at home and all kinds of problems. The good thing is that Youth for Christ continues to bring sparkles if hope which is life changing.

At the moment we are eight volunteers from Germany and Holland at the YDC, all helping in different projects of Youth for Christ – KZN. We, Judith and Malte are working together in the two shelters.


Feli shares about her experiences

When I arrived, it was very soon clear to me that I would work in the Outreach team. There is a great diversity in the things you can learn and experience.  Things I have never heard of or seen before!  This is my fifth month working with Khayalethu Outreach Team and I must say I enjoy it a lot. Okay so now let me explain what happens in the Outreach team and what I am doing there in between of Zulus and a lot of men.
