Tshega Christian Mission

Tshega Christian Mission

Tshega Christian Mission (TCM) was established by four individuals in 2004 and registered as a Non Profit Organization in August 2006.

Tshega Christian Mission was established with the desire to educate and empower the disadvantaged and vulnerable communities that are affected by unemployment and undesirable living circumstances.

The founder, Ellanie van Rooyen, was already teaching in a school when the doors were about to close. After staying committed, TCM was registered and now serves the community of Bolebedu South in a holistic manner. Reaching the villages through education, outreaches and ministry.

The Lighthouse Academy was started in 2009 and is a fully functioning independent primary school and just one of the programs that run from the base of the organisation. Every 10th child is a sponsored child and in so we are able to reach more vulnerable children to help improve education in this country.

There are 5 main programs that are running from the base and various programs that fit underneath them. Namely Education, Outreach, Ministry, Sport and Sustainability. 

Other programs include the Kindergarten, Lamb’s Haven as well as Basadi, Women’s skills project that help to empower vulnerable women in the villages by giving them valuable skills, self worth and a way to provide for their families.

TCM does not stop at educating children and women but serve also the physical needs and spiritual needs of the community. We are committed to seeing holistic transformation in the lives of every one who is involved with TCM.
