Chics aims to see children growing up in healthy households. We do this by facilitating and bringing people together to improve their relationships and the quality of life of the children. Simultaneously we promote the understanding that community members (children, parents, day care centres, churches, schools, authorities, etc.) have the ability to improve their own circumstances. Pharos supports the Mamelodi-branch of this project.

HALFITIME is a pause in life to reflect on: what have I accomplished, who did I become, and will it matter in the end? It is also a time to make eye contact with God and get your unique assignment for the second half of your life HALFITIME consists of attending an Information session or Seminar - for you to determine whether you are in HALFITIME or not, which can then be followed up with a HALFITIME journey of one year - with 10 Forum sessions (one session per month), along with a small group of fellow-Christians – to appropriately prepare you for the second half.

Pharos annually provide stationery to needy scholars at the beginning of the school year. These children are identified by the staff, social workers and the CMR. Packages are bought according to requirements of each grade. This enables the children to be ready for the new school year.
Jacob’s Well is a support network for people “between jobs”. Meetings are held at Pharos on Thursday mornings at 09h00. People are receiving spiritual and emotional support. They are also supported in the process of job seeking and/or the development of small businesses.
CBI Community business initiative
This project has developed due to the dramatic escalation of unemployment in Pretoria East. Statistics indicate that a minimum of 4 000 households have been directly affected by it. Therefore the Body of Christ cannot be apathetic towards the need, but should become involved in the solution of the problem.
The primary focus of CBI is to facilitate the unlocking of business potential by
- Establishing small interactive support groups with a business developmental focus and
- Supporting the development of sustainable community businesses that are explicitly Christian and intentionally profitable.
