In 2009 the Promiseland Trust purchased a home in the urban area Tutaleni, where most of the vulnerable children are from, and named it the Promiseland Centre. It was transformed it into a soup kitchen and food distribution point. A bigger hall was built on the premises to house a bigger kitchen and storage facility, as well as a recreational and play room for the children we care for.
From the Promiseland Centre we successfully run three projects:Feeding
- The Feeding Project at Promiseland currently provides daily home cooked meals in two sittings for roughly 200 vulnerable children. The first meal is prepared and served to pre-primary children during their morning activities at the Promiseland Centre and the second for school-going children in the afternoons.
The Trust also assist a local community project with the logistics to feed approximately 1500 needy children at 8 schools in Walvis Bay on a daily basis during the school terms. (Read More...)

The Trust provides them with housing, groceries, clothing, education and emotional support.(Read More...)
