Who We Are

Badisa, is a faith-based social welfare organisation that provides professional social welfare and development services. The organisation started as the welfare services of the Dutch Reformed Church (Western and Southern Cape) and the Uniting Reformed Church in Southern Africa (Cape) and has grown to also provide these services in partnership with various stakeholders such as local and provincial government, the corporate sector and other non-profit organisations.

We provide social services to ALL in need, irrespective of age, gender, nationality or religion, making our services inclusive to all.

As a registered Non-Profit Organisation (NPO 011-891) and a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO 930 006 348) we are committed to social development through 153 community-based programmes in the Western, Northern and Eastern Cape. The programmes receive guidance from a management programme in terms of service delivery, human resources, financial advice and overall programme management to ensure legal compliance, good corporate governance, supervision, as well as consultation and practice leadership.

We cover a broad spectrum of social welfare services with four focus groups:

  • Children and their families
  • Older people and their families
  • Differently abled people
  • People with substance abuse problems.
