Mission and Vision
Prochorus Community Development exists to collaboratively achieve social justice and empowerment of individuals and communities.
Our primary focus is to redress the social imbalances in society and secondly to meet the needs and concerns of the local community.
Prochorus Community Developments is committed to the development of all communities with respect to their diverse specific needs. Advantaged communities are targeted for the purpose of mobilising and advancing their philanthropic capacity. Ongoing awareness is established to bring an understanding of their interdependence relative to disadvantaged communities.
We serve disadvantaged communities according to the guidelines of need-assessment studies, and the accessibility of resources. Our focus is directed towards Early Childhood Development, Youth Development, Skills Development and Community Welfare.
Prochorus aims toward making a lasting difference in the lives of the people of the communities of South Africa. We do this by contributing towards the education of children and adults, assisting them in acquiring skills that will allow them to become financially independent and teaching them how to protect themselves against addiction, physical abuse and other criminal offenses.
