Catholic Welfare and Development is one of the largest and longest established NGOs in SA. The focus of our work is in the Western Cape.
Our aim is to develop people to rise out of poverty, with the major focus being on development work.
Wherever possible, we work with provincial and local government to refine service delivery to the poor, homeless, children and others.
But we also need the support of corporate South Africa, funders and individual donors from all over the world ... all joining together to give our people a hand-up towards self-reliance.
The organisation was founded under the auspices of the Catholic Church in 1972 by two social workers who could not turn a blind eye to the abject poverty and injustices suffered by under-privileged people under the apartheid regime.
From the start, we engaged with these communities with the aim of helping them decide on priorities and find their own solutions.
Today, although CWD works with people of all denominations, we still abide by the ethos and social teachings of the Catholic Church, and are proud to have as our patron the Archbishop of Cape Town, Archbishop Stephen Brislin.
