'n Bietjie Van Ons Geskiedenis

A Bit Of Our History

Eleos is ‘n Griekse woord wat GENADE IN AKSIE beteken, en dit is wat ‘n groep vroue van Pretoria-Oos begin doen het. Gedurende Augustus 1998 het ‘n groep vroue ‘n speelgroep in Booysens besoek. Die desperate nood en swaarkry van die kinders het die vrouens só geraak dat hulle onmiddellik besluit het om aktief betrokke te raak. Hulle het nie net besef by hoeveel gesinne basiese noodsaaklikhede ontbreek nie, maar kon ook sien dat maatskaplike opheffing en voortgesette projekte nodig was om ‘n verskil in die kinders se lewens te maak. Met verloop van tyd is verskillende gemeenskapsprojekte van stapel gestuur wat op die gesin as geheel fokus. ʼn Gemeenskapsentrum in Wilhelmstraat (Huis van Genade) en ‘n sentrum wat fokus op vroeë kinderontwikkeling in Marketstraat (Huis van Hoop) het spoedig bakens geword van hoop vir talle behoeftige gesinne. Eleos bedryf ook drie naskole in die omgewing.
Eleos is a Greek word that means MERCY IN ACTION and that is what a group of women from Pretoria East started doing. In August 1998, a group of women visited a playgroup in Booysens. The desperate need and struggle of the children touched the women in such a way that they immediately decided to get actively involved. They not only realised how many families lived in dire need of basic items but that social upliftment and ongoing projects were needed to make a difference in the childrenʼs lives. Over the years, various community projects were launched, focussing on the family as a whole. A Community Centre in Wilhelm Street and an Early Childhood Development Centre in Market Street soon became beacons of hope for many destitute families. Eleos also has two After School Care facilities in close vicinity to the primary schools.
