Welcome to O Grace Land
“We Stand in the Gap”
… for girls who have aged out of care. The time that girls spend at O Grace Land is just that: a time of grace. The transition that O Grace Land offers is one that helps girls develop job and life skills, self esteem and an independent mind-set. Overall we help girls to become young women ready to step into adult life.
O Grace Land is built on the firm foundation of God’s love and faith in Christ.
Our call to establish O Grace Land is based on these biblical verses:
“Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them…he or she is like a person who builds a house upon a rock” – Luke 6:47
“Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” – Psalm 91LATEST NEWS

A Safe Place
O Grace Land creates a space where girls can live and develop. O Grace Land girls go horse riding and do craft on the farm.
We support each girl to complete Matric, Tertiary education or to develop job and life skills to help them thrive as they work and live.
Boost self esteem, an independent mind-set, job search skills, self care in the home, conflict management and anger management.
O Grace Land girls are encouraged to have a personal relationship with God, and choose to take part in devotions, local churches and community projects.
Our values are…

He brings his experience as Programme Officer at Fountain of Hope, a Baphumelele Youth home and as Programme Co-ordinator at SA-Yes. Philani also has financial experience after years in corporate finance before he felt called to work directly with at-risk youth. A Christian, he attends Jubilee Church, Cape Town.
I feel passionate about O Grace Land because standing in the gap for these girls makes a difference. I'm excited to see us finish the good work children's homes have started.
I feel so strongly called to start O Grace Land, that there is a special need for a place like this. I'm excited to see O Grace Land stand in the gap for girls who have come so far, but aren't quite ready for adult life yet.
