GFFJ is calling on generous individuals, families and organizations that share the same passion for the poorest of the poor to contribute and increase the impact of the event and make a remarkable difference in the lives of people in need. Strategic partners in the form of sponsors, donors, suppliers of goods, service providers
and/or any gift-in kind are welcome.
Overview: The Global Fund For Jesus (GFFJ) is a Johannesburg, South Africa-based global organization and universal platform that works to bring the Kingdom of God on earth by focusing on alleviation of global and social justice issues through resource mobilization and program implementation networks, partnerships and strategic alliances aimed to address poverty and uplift vulnerable and disadvantaged populations through education, health, food security, job creation, economic empowerment and entrepreneurship projects.
Problem Statement: The State of Nations globally is marked by stark health, education and development inequalities, post COVID-19 economic recession, rising infectious and chronic disease mortality, growing unemployment and poverty levels, and rampant government inefficiencies, fraud and corruption in all strata of society, thus negatively impacting the health status and wellbeing of children, families, communities and populations worldwide.
Strategic Solution: The existing human development inequalities and economic injustices must be addressed through concerted public, private and non-profit sector efforts to create good health, wealth and economic empowerment amongst the poor, increase the influence of Christians in all mountains and sectors of society, and show compassion to the less fortunate and vulnerable populations around the world. GFFJ, therefore, invites public, private, and non profit organizations to join forces to host a Thanksgiving Event on 20 November 2021, and to contribute to support and assist disadvantaged individuals and families through the distribution of Thanksgiving Gift Hampers. Hampers comprising food, school stationery, clothing, toys, etc., will be distributed in Gauteng, Mpumalanga, KZN and Limpopo, particularly to poor, indigent, and child-headed families.
THANKSGIVING GIFT HAMPERS DISTRIBUTION PROJECT JUSTIFICATION
- The urgent need to address the high levels of poverty in South African communities.
- The GFFJ Mandate to do what Jesus would do if He were physically present today on earth.
WHO QUALIFIES FOR THANKSGIVING GIFT HAMPERS?
Disadvantaged and indigent individuals and families including child-headed households qualify for the Thanksgiving Gift Hampers Distribution Project. The Hampers Distribution Team will carry out mean testing to determine whether the households meet established criteria to qualify for disadvantaged and indigent status.
WHAT IS THE SET CRITERIA?
Whilst the GFFJ recognizes that there are various methods that can be utilized to define less privileged families, the following method is most appropriate to the organisation and will be applied in determining whether an applicant qualifies and is entitled to the Gift Hampers distribution support.
- Copies of SA ID Documents or Birth Certificate of applicant. (Any form of verifiable identification for immigrants, even those with refugee status)
- Completed Application Form.
- An affidavit confirming the correctness of the information contained in the application form and that household income from all sources have been declared. This can be certified by and stamped at any police station, church, civic organisation, tribal office, or similar registered structure.
Every year the Global Business Roundtable hosts its Thanksgiving Ceremony. It is an opportunity to gather together as the body of Christ, reflect on all God’s unending mercies and to give thanks for His undeserved grace.
