TLC Outreach Projects is a non-profit, welfare organisation which sole purpose is to care for the elderly- and destitute youth at risk in- and around the Table View area.
TLC was established by Derek and Colleen Pietersen in the year 2000. With Derek being a successful businessman and Colleen discovering her passion for underprivileged communities, the establishment of our welfare organisation was inevitable. TLC was birthed in the year 2000 and our community-based project has been rehabilitating the lives of children living on the streets as a result of abuse, addiction and extreme poverty. Over the past years, our reach has extended to include meeting the needs of children at risk living in informal settlements.
TLC’s work is supported through networks with other organisations, our local Police Station, the Community Police Forum, the Department of Social Services, a small but effective staff compliment, volunteers and countless caring and generous community members.
We are practical in our approach and our programs are designed to serve the needs of the communities for which they are intended.
“I believe that when one finds your purpose, you’ve found something beautiful and inevitable. In this case, we’ve discovered that our passion is to establish- and expand the kingdom of God through serving our underprivileged communities and making God’s love known and felt.” Founder – Colleen Pietersen
