About Reachout to AfricaReachout To Africa is a Christian registered Canadian charity, humanitarian organization dedicated to providing financial and logistical aid to communities and vulnerable children of Southern Africa.
We work closely with various organizations who have many, many years of experience working in various countries in Africa. These organizations are involved with local grass root community resilience building and educational and development projects.
They do this together with NGO's, Faith based organizations (FBO) Churches, Educational and Government organizations. We are seeing new avenues open up where there are many exciting opportunities for real contributions. These grassroots individuals and organizations in Southern Africa are the beneficiaries of Reachout To Africa.
Why Southern Africa?The whole African continent is experiencing capacity shrinkage. The two main reasons for this are the Brain Drain and the AIDS pandemic. Africans are emigrating at an alarming rate. Combined with those who are incapacitated by AIDS, there is actually a more acute need for capacity building today, than ever before.
Key professions like teaching, nursing and engineering are being depleted. This is having a knock-on effect when it comes to the social services. Governments in particular have to re-think their roles in terms of service delivery. More than they might have liked simply has to be devolved to people and groups at the grass roots.
This is the order of the day. Another consequence is that Africa will need significant numbers of collaborators/Volunteers from overseas to shore up its sagging social services. These volunteers need to come with attitudes that allow them to transfer know-how to those they work with; this mode of learning is one that Reachout To Africa is using more and more.
Late in 2012 the board of Reachout to Africa reached an agreement to create a new partneship with the Muyoyah Memorial Foundation located in the Solwezi District of NorthWest Zambia. More information about Muyoyah's Program can be found at www.muyoyahmf.org Reachout To Afrcia welcomes Regina De Zoete, her team in Canada and the family and staff in Zambia to this new partnership.

The foundation's purpose and goal is the work of the Lord in Solwezi, Zambia at its Community Mission Centre (which lies approximately 4 km from Solwezi town). This Centre was established to teach and spread the Full Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, with the intention of having a Bible school, seminar and outreach centre. To continue the spread of the gospel, the seminars help teach leaders to go out and share the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ in towns and villages far and near.

Our desire is that Hillside Baptist Church would reflect the sense of community, fellowship, and ministry that our members experience through their attendance at our church on Lynn Valley Road. Hillside is not the building, but the family of wonderful caring people who meet week after week, and demonstrate God's love through their actions.
