Destitute – Vision of Ophelp Projekte
We believe that we are called to assist people on the road to habilitation, whatever their situation or addiction may be. Our main aim is to see that people are welcomed into a caring fellowship of believers, and become vibrant followers of Christ.
A life where the un-employable, the employable and the empowered learn together how to co-operate in living free and industrious lives, and where they are being called to become disciples of Jesus.
Ophelp Projekte Projekte are not job creation activities. They are a bundle of habilitation programmes for people who are not yet able to act productively and responsibly. These projects help desperate and destitute individuals to earn cash in hand, by means of honest and hard work, as an alternative to aggressive begging, theft or other criminal activities.
Important life skills are learnt and put into practice. While areas are cleared of rubbish and other undesirable objects, undesirable issues and circumstances are also purged from the streets, from people’s lives and from the community. They are also encouraged to become disciples of Jesus and join a disciple group. We call these interventions the “school of life”.
