Amazing Grace Upliftment Centre was established in 2015 to
assist the many kids in Westlake who, for a variety of reasons,
could not attend school. Our vision was to nurture, counsel,
feed and educate as many of these kids as possible, within
the limited space we had available.
Over the past six years, our centre has grown from strength
to strength. Our scope of assistance has widened
dramatically to include counseling of parents and children,
educational assessments, speech therapy, horse therapy,
hip hop classes, art classes, swimming lessons, assistance of social workers, distributing food parcels, running soup kitchens and feeding schemes, assisting the community during difficult times such as fires and family deaths.
We currently feed 300 people, twice a week at various points in Westlake and are hoping to increase this to 5 days a week.
We offer remedial services to kids from Westlake primary who are in danger of falling out of the schooling system.
Thanks to incredible generosity, we are thrilled to have expanded our facility dramatically. Our beautiful new building now boasts 2 class rooms, a multipurpose (dance, art, therapy and exercise) studio, 2 counseling rooms, staff quarters, 5 bathrooms, 2 storerooms and a bakery.
