2009 Accomplishments

A year-end Summary 2009

The Beacon of Hope Board of Directors are extatic about the progress that has occurred in our AIDS education program during 2009. BOHI continues to seek partnerships with other public benefit organizations and churches both here in the USA and also in South Africa.

The HIV/AIDS Education program:

Our Partners:

Our primary partner in this program is Campus Crusade for Christ who is responsible for producing the training material we use. We are working with them in three Campus Crusade Regional offices at present (Richards Bay, Durban and Pretoria). The second level of partnership in this training endeavor is through local churches. They are the backbone of the training program and provide the abundant supply of volunteers that present the student seminars at the high schools.

Church Partners:
Richards Bay tri-city area.
  • Living Stones Covenant Church
  • Meerensee Methodist Center
  • Calvary Baptist
  • Outlook Community

Soshanguve (Pretoria) In Gauteng Province since 2008

  • Ebenezer Fellowship. Bishop Dr. Elias & Dr. Zodwa Gomba.

New partnerships this year.

  • Pastor Patrick & Doreen Zondi in Greytown


  • Klipgat: Pastor Andrew Matlala
  • Winterveld: Pastor Johannes Joey Baloyi

US Churches:

We are comtinueing to seak out churches across the USA that will particpate in out annual mission trips to South Africa. As the AIDS education program expands into new geographic areas it is essential that we have new blood to help us inspire new geographic areas to adopt the program.
