Today for Tomorrow - Southern Africa Regional Project

Today for Tomorrow (T4T) is a discipleship, health and HIV prevention curriculum aimed at strengthening the character of children and youth in areas of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and good citizenship.

Initially developed in Zimbabwe by SIM Missionaries from South Africa with a local Pastor and his wife in Zimbabwe, Today for Tomorrow (T4T) is now a regional program. Currently, T4T is active in Botswana, Namibia, Malawi, South Africa, the Kingdom of eSwatini, Mozambique, Lesotho,  and Zimbabwe with a possibility to implement it in Mauritius and Madagascar after Vision sharing in 2022

Working specifically with church denominations, organizations and communities, T4T trains volunteers, children’s workers and Sunday school teachers, and provides comprehensive curriculum resources.

T4T seeks to share the love of God, displayed through Jesus Christ, and contribute to a healthy and HIV/AIDS-free generation. It utilizes a holistic approach, supporting the physical, spiritual, social, mental and emotional development of children and youth.

Today for Tomorrow - South Africa & the Kingdom of eSwatini

This adaption of SIM’s Today for Tomorrow (T4T) program is aimed at children and youth between the ages of 6 – 12 years. The program assists churches, schools and others who work with children and youth to reach those in their community, building a bridge between young and old. Reaching out to the whole child assists in their physical, social, intellectual, spiritual and emotional development. Furthermore, teenagers are mentored in behaviour change by engaging them in HIV and AIDS information sharing.

Lulisandla Kumntwana (Reach Out To The Child)

Lulisandla Kumntwana began in 2002 as a response to the growing number of orphans resulting from the AIDS pandemic. At the core of the ministry was the conviction that, for the majority of children, institutional care is not the best option. Lulisandla Kumntwana seeks to strengthen families, churches and communities so that orphaned children may be cared for within their community. Originally a fostering agency, our services have expanded over the years to currently include:

  • Psychosocial support (individual counselling and advice, and psychosocial support workshops)
  • Educational support (school monitoring visits, life skills teaching, after school clubs, financial assistance)
  • Tertiary & vocational program (assistance with registering at TVET colleges)
