Handevat / Holding Hands is a sponsorship programme for the children at Pella.

The initiative is under the umbrella of Hineni Ministries from the Welfare Ministries at Church on the Rise.

The idea is that a family or individual from our church family at COTR ‘Sponsors’ a child from the Pella community and entails the following:

  1. Praying for a child
  2. Writing a letter to a child every 3 months
  3. Birthday Sponsorship
    1. Bake a cake every month end for the kids that had a birthday in the month
    2. Sponsor R 250.00 towards the baking of the cake

We currently have 32 children which have signed up for the programme, ranging from 1 – 15 years of age. There are 18 girls and 14 boys that are from about 20 households.

If you are interested in becoming part of the programme as a COTR individual or family, complete the online form - click here.

Each family or individual that has signed up will then be assigned a child from the Pella community and further guidelines will be given regarding the programme.

Thank you
