THE Gideon Foundation was founded by Gideon John Cebekhulu, his wife Kindness Thobile Cebekhulu and Eric Canham in December 2008 to assist children in need.

The project was later joined by Pastor Ndumiso Mzolo, his wife Ruby Sebe Mzolo, Sbu Gift Mgobhozi and his wife Bongiwe Pearl Mgobhozi.

Gideon Cebekhulu, the training manager said: “Our daily activities included fetching children from school and providing them with food and assisting with homework.

“This project is definitely not easy to run especially when you run it with your own financial resources and therefore, we had a lot of start and stops until we decide to sell some of our cars to keep it running.”

Cebekhulu said that these funds helped them to launch the project in April 2009 with an endeavour to expose it to outside donors.

Gideon as the chairman, is now raising the funds for the organisation through writing books such as, The Greatest Life Changing Testimony Gave Us a Child After 14 Years of Marriage, which published by Penguin and the second book and The True Worship Song is Withdrawn from the Account of Adversity.

The children are now attending tertiary education and therefore, they require more support. As a result, Gideon has established the training company called GES Training and Development to assist not only beneficiaries, but the community at large so that they become employable.

“This passion is close to our hearts and we will do anything to make sure that we contribute towards the betterment of our community. We want our young stars to shine bright in the future and for them to help others who are in need,” he added.

The foundation will be hosting a 10km Run and 5km walk on the 16 December at Inanda Dam - KwaNgcolosi and the community is invited to attend and support the organisation.
