Rays of Hope is a Section-21 (non-profit) and Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) which manages a large number of social outreach projects in Alexandra Township (Alex) in northern Johannesburg.
The PBO aims to enable individuals and families to improve all aspects of their lives, thereby creating a lasting impact on the broader Alex residential community.
Rays of Hope started operating with one project in 1991 and has grown to a network of 9 community-based projects, focusing on unemployment, primary crime prevention, health care, education, and orphans & vulnerable children. Over 1000 people are impacted in total. As such, the organisation is hands-on in Alex, having developed close relationships with community leaders, the police, high schools, the Alexandra Clinic and the Department of Social Development, which has enabled it to leverage appropriate assistance where available and necessary.
