To be part of FCD is to have a front row seat of God’s miracle work and His heart for people, especially vulnerable people. I’ve always had a burning desire to play a role in addressing poverty and inequality in South Africa, in a sustainable manner and what a privilege it is to do that every day, through being part of this beautiful organisation.

Head of housekeeping
I’m continually inspired how, in a broken, unfair and scarred world, God uses the passion, gifts and talents of ordinary people to love, teach and coach our beneficiaries so they can discover their own abilities to change, grow in confidence and find meaningful work. This is the purpose of FCD, to serve God, by training the unemployed.

The work that FCD does is an extension of what Jesus called us to do, namely, care for and love your fellow man.
Accountant & board treasurer
Being part of FCD to me means the absolute privilege and honour of being a tiny part of God’s solution for South Africa. Every testimony, every confirmation of a new job, every story about how God touched the life of not only our students, but also the lives of volunteers and staff at FCD serves as immeasurable encouragement and motivation to me. FCD is part of a move of God, and I get the privilege of being part of it!
