We do not function alone in making a difference in our community. To this end, we have several strategic partners that assist us.


Upside does not discriminate against anyone.

We believe that we are all made in the image of God, and THAT alone is enough to garner respect and support for all humanity and all the rest of God’s creation. Added to that, we believe that it is by our actions, not only our good intentions or persuasive words, that we can others can experience God’s love for his world. However, God remains central to our belief system, and we honour God here first as our most important partner.

The People of the Deep South

Without the support and cooperation of the people in the community, we will never be successful. So we honour and thank all the regular folk who encourage, support, and speak well about us. Then we would thank the people who trust us to use our programmes and share the stories of their lives with us. This is an honour and a blessing for us.

Southside Church

All organisations have a backstory or a genesis. Ours lies in the hearts, minds and hands of a few people at Southside Church who wanted to impact the community in which they function. Without their passion and support, we would not be here today. Visit them at Southside Church.

Non-Profit Organisations

We join hands with other NPOs in the Deep South to multiply our impact for change. These NPOs include:

Living Hope has a longstanding and proven track record of helping the communities of the Cape Peninsula. Be sure to visit their website for more details: Living Hope | Bringing Hope, Breaking Despair
