Community Development



KZN Floods | Call to assist foo-stricken communities

Tree Planting

In September 2017 100 fruit trees was planted to initiate the donation of the property. This event included members of the community and other public benefit organizations. These trees are being cultivated and cared for by 3 members that have been employed from the surrounding community.

A bore hole was dug that supplies water for the irrigation of the trees and other needs on the property.

Agricultural Training

The organization has also partnered with the Department of Agriculture and Rural development to host agricultural training for the planting of subsistence vegetable gardens. A 400sqm vegetable garden was developed on the property which is cultivating and harvesting different vegetables daily.

First Aid Training

We have partnered with a service provider for first aid training for members of the community. Several candidates have attended the first aid course and received certification.  This will be on going so that awareness is created within the community about the importance of first aid.

 Woolworths foods

Dokimos Foundation as a non-profit organization has partnered with Woolworths foods for weekly distribution of groceries. A dedicated team picks and delivers groceries to several partnering organizations which include:

Sahara Childrens Home          – Domestic Violence and Abuse

Elim Old Age Home                  – Home for the aged

Latter Rain Foundation            – Homeless individuals and street children

Mzama Childrens Home          – Treatment of children with cerebral palsy

Groceries are regularly distributed to needy families in the community who are destitute

 Environmental Affairs

Dokimos Foundation is currently partnering with UW Agencies, an emerging company that specializes in “Environmental Recovery, Onsite Waste Management & Recycling”. They have expertise in Education Programs, Presentations, Training & Consultations on Recycling and are recyclers of recyclable materials such as cardboard, paper, plastic, HD bottles, P.E.T bottles, glass, cans and metals. This initiative in its research stage and we hope to create awareness in the community about the importance of recycling and waste management.

Block making initiative

The organization has purchased a block making machine to initiate economic empowerment through block making. Several homes within the surrounding communities are in need of blocks for construction.

The supplier has also provided training for block making. This is a current project that is still in Phase 1 of its development. We envision that 3 people would be employed full time to manufacture blocks and paving bricks.

 Zoe Community Development Centre (Johannesburg)

In order to effectively give expression to our vision, we have taken on a project to purchase a building that will be used as a Community Development Centre. The property is zoned for community services in the Wendywood area of Johannesburg and has a building on site. The building will be used for our Seminars, Counselling services, and Youth Development Initiatives. We have a team in Johannesburg that are running this project fulltime.

 The Community Development Centre will serve as a base for the Teaching, Mentorship and Training of people both within and outside of the local community. It will also serve as a safe-house for women and children affected by abuse, and as a Youth Development centre. The building will also be a place that will provide people with entrepreneurial skills that will empower them economically and contribute towards the economy of South Africa.

The property is strategically positioned in the Johannesburg region. This will allow us to reach people from all walks of life, from the shiny streets of Sandton to the impoverished township of Alexandra, which is just 5km away from the centre
