In an effort to reach a community that faces poverty; gangsterism, drug and alcohol addiction; and various forms of abuse on a daily basis, Meeting The Needs Foundation, through an initiative named the The ROC Project (Reaching Our Community) will be conducting a 7-day community outreach programme within the Greenbury area in Phoenix, north of Durban, South Africa.

This programme will run from July 7 – 13, 2014.  A variety of programmes are being scheduled for the week, each with the purpose of achieving the mission for this project:

Changing and transforming the Community through the tangible love of God!

Although The ROC Project is a Christian programme at large, the project seeks to serve the entire community, and as such we will be there to help everyone in Greenbury regardless of their personal religious beliefs.

Our vision for this project is to see a transformation of the community, through the eradication of drug and alcohol addiction; gangsterism, woman and child abuse; poverty; the restoration of the family structure and job creation.

Gateway Church (Mt Edgecombe) has been ministering in the Greenbury area for a number of years.  A survey of each household within this 6,000 strong community has been conducted and Gateway Church has a list of household numbers, employment rates, specific needs, etc.  Greenbury is well-known as one of Durban’s hardest hit drug areas, and is commonly known as the High Chaparral.  In May 2013, the Gateway Church Greenbury was officially opened.

It was through the serving of the community that a number of needs have been identified and the vision for Meeting The Needs Foundation was borne.  Meeting The Needs Foundation was established as a fully autonomous registered non-profit organisation.
