Understanding the Need

PEN works in 5 areas across Pretoria where lack of access feeds the generational poverty cycle. In South Africa, 60% of adults live in a constant state of poverty.

Stories of Transformation

At PEN we don’t do handouts, but understand that through love, care, and empathy life patterns can be transformed and stories rewritten. Please take a moment and meet some of our heroes, who have taken charge of their own stories and allowed us to play a part in them.

Our System

Our holistic programs are a result of over three decades of experience in community development based on five key impact areas: Physical Wellbeing, Emotional Wellbeing, Spiritual Wellbeing, Vocational Wellbeing and Community.
