Our Vision

As native South Africans, Janice and I have seen first hand both the need, opportunity and potential of a vast continent populated with an incredibly diverse and gifted people group. The lack of educational resources, economic challenges, poor health infrastructure as well as traditional limiting beliefs have long been an obstacle to the countries in Africa emerging as viable global economies. In the past decade, exploding technology and the dawn of the “Information Age” have opened the window for the west to look inside at the plight of so many, and reach out to lend a hand. Our Mission for New Vision for Africa starts with the name itself. It is our hope and prayer that through this window the world would help us create a new vision for Africa. We want everyone to see the opportunity for abundance that is possible through the lavish resources of the rest of the world. The injured, impoverished and illiterate see abundance much different than we do. A glass of clean water, a nutritious meal, shelter and medicine are a gracious gift from God given to them by those who follow Jesus' command to help one another in need. The goal of New Vision for Africa Foundation is to help them not only survive, but thrive. 

"What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has the eyes to see misery and want. It has ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like." ~St. Augustine of Hippo 

Ultimately it comes down to us portraying the same love that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ shared with us by giving His own life so that we may have eternal life and not perish. How can we possibly expect Him to love us if we cannot exhibit that same love to others, especially those in such dire need? If we believe this, it is our duty, our obligation to help where help is needed! As Christ says in the book of Matthew, "Then the righteous will answer him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you a drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?' And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me." Matt. 25:37-40
