Welcome

Prochorus is a community-based organisation situated in Kayamandi, just outside the beautiful town of Stellenbosch in South Africa.

Prochorus Community Development (PCD) was established in 1996 and is a registered non-profit, section 21 organisation(96/14653/08).

Our main focus in the past was the needs of Kayamandi but we are no longer restricted to this area alone and we are now involved with other previously disadvantaged groups in and around Stellenbosch, Somerset West and Cape Town.

We believe that helping the poor is a privilege and task of advantaged communities. We also understand that such help need to be professionally managed so that the experience is meaningful to all involved and not an endless drain of resources. Prochorus possesses a wealth of human resources - in the form of volunteers with great and diverse skills and expertise that contributes to a knowledgeable and skilled management team.

We act as facilitators for people and organisations that desire to make a meaningful contribution to those stuck in the poverty cycle. A variety of community projects run by Prochorus have made a significant contribution to the community through empowerment, training and skills development for both local children and adults.
