Retha van Zyl Real Estate partnered with Towers of Hope and supports their work through
donations following successful real estate transactions. "I hope to make a difference in the
lives of those in need, while also supporting the efforts of Towers of Hope to eradicate the
litter that pollutes our beautiful city.”
Towers of Hope Leadership Foundation was established in 2008 and works from the premises of
the old Two Tower Dutch Reformed Church in the Bloemfontein Central Business District. The
Foundation focuses on serving the marginalised and unemployed residents of the city. Towers of
Hope was registered as a Non-Governmental Organisation in 2011.
Towers of Hope’s vision is for communities to be transformed from vulnerability to ability.
The mission flowing from this vision is to develop and manage a variety of processes and
interventions whereby vulnerable people can realise their God-given dignity.
Purpose & Functioning of the Cleanup Team
The Proud Clean Bloemfontein initiative is one of many successful interventions Towers of Hope
implement to help change the lives of the destitute. Proud Clean Bloemfontein is a job
preparation program that provides a cleaning service to businesses and individuals in and
around Bloemfontein. This initiative gives the beneficiaries of Towers of Hope the opportunity
to take responsibility for their city, and for themselves.
Apart from being included in the work teams, participants also attend a weekly life-skills
session where they receive guidance to re-enter the formal employment sector.
Proud Clean Bloemfontein is a cleaning service with a social conscience. Through this
initiative, Towers of Hope has helped many participants turn their lives around.
Keep an eye out for the Towers of Hope signs and Proud Clean Bloemfontein Work Teams in
various areas of Bloemfontein. You will notice a team cleaning Frans Kleynhans Road from
Heuwelsig to Woodland Hills Wildlife Estate, each Friday - a collaboration between Towers of
Hope and Woodland Hills Wildlife Estate.
