Supporting the community

Supporting our community through pregnancy care, family transformation, educational development and empowerment. Join us on our journey to improve our community. We believe in the philosophy of “teaching people how to fish.”


We believe that education is a crucial part in the future of every child. Our facility offers after school programmes, tutoring, and career guidance. Additionally we educate the parents and guardians on creating a culture of learning in the home too.


We provide a platform from which women experiencing pregnancy crisis can make informed choices. This includes counselling and information giving as well as ante and post natal education and support.


We support families in crisis, preparing couples for marriage, helping people discover their identity and purpose, mentoring men, women and children of all ages and also equipping parents with healthy parenting skills that can be passed down generations.



We believe in empowering people to help themselves long term. This is done by developing a strong work ethic in the people of our community, doing crafts and skills training, creating job opportunities, and networking with other relevant organisations.

About Us

Our Mission

Vision & Values

We strive to help serve and support anyone experiencing a crisis in our community. We are a Christian Life-Affirming Non-Profit Organisation that is tax exempted. We value excellence, integrity, equal opportunity for all, developing a community spirit, and establishing partnerships through networking with others. 


What We Do

We are a multi-purpose centre that offers a variety of services.  We see our centre as a beacon of hope and light to the community, a centre that cares for the community.

At Plight Community Centre, we do our utmost to assist with the needs in our community. Through educating and empowering children and adults, we want to give them the tools to create a better life for themselves. Assisting pregnant women also ensures that infants have the best chance at a positive and fruitful life ahead.

Make a Donation

We rely on financial support in order to provide for the needs of the community.


Without people offering their time, we would not grow. Together we make a difference!


Contribute to a cause

There are a variety of causes that we offer and while we appreciate any form of donation, we know that there may be a specific cause that pulls on your heart strings. Feel free to choose a cause that you’d like to help us grow in. 

How to get involved

There are many ways for you to get involved, whether it is on a small or large scale. Our organisation requires sponsorship and funding to grow and continue to assist the needs. We are also in need of volunteers to be part of our teams as we assist so many children and adults with our services. There is no assistance that is too small for us.

“When it comes to speaking out for the voiceless, and ministering to women in crisis, I believe this ministry is at the forefront of tapping into the needs in their community. There understanding of purpose drives them to accomplish their mission. I strongly believe their heartbeat beats in rhythm with the Father’s Heart.”

“Wat ‘n spesiale organisasie is Plight nie, en wat ‘n voorreg om te weet daar is ‘n veilige plek om heen te gaan vir alle vroue oud en jonk van Port Alfred Gemeenskap. ‘n Plek war vroue en meisies ondersteuning en hulp kan kry deur profesionele en goed opgeleide personeel in tye waar vrees paniek enige mens verkeerde besluite kan laat neem, is hierdie mense beskikbaar om leiding te gee.

Ons wil Teneil Carter van Plight centre en al die vrywilligers bedank vir hul onbaatsugtige diens en dat hul hierdie instansie op die been gebring het as ook vir hul toegewydheid.”

It has been my experience that the people working for Plight community Centre are dedicated, compassionate people who give their all to anyone in need. I am proud to be associated with them. You couldn’t be in more caring hands.
