Common Good

Common Good is a non-profit organisation that focuses on addressing Cape Town's challenges of Early Childhood Development, Education and Employment. Common Good creates opportunities for those marginalised by poverty and injustice to realise their full, God-given potential, and mobilizes the church to engage and act justly. Common Good was founded by Common Ground Church in 2005 as an independent and registered non-profit. What began as a staff of one and a half, has grown into multiple teams of development practitioners and specialists. On any given day, we impact thousands of lives in Cape Town and beyond through our Early Life, Education and Employment initiatives. We believe that investing in these three areas, while mobilising the church to live a lifestyle of social justice, has the greatest potential for positive change in our society. Common Good’s vision is for a society where individuals, communities and The Church are living and acting justly so that those marginalised by injustice are transformed and flourishing physically, spiritually, economically and socially, all for the glory of God.
