Welcome to Building the Walls
of the communities
The organisation was originally founded by Elaine and Richard Paulse with the help of some community members. Their passion for helping the unfortunate and disadvantaged people within their community soon becomes a full-time responsibility and they were committed to seeing it through.
How it Started
They started with a small Soup kitchen from a church called “Gospel Park “to feed the vulnerable, frail elderly, disable, Hiv/Aids, TB victims and young neglected children. This initiative grows so fast and they had to register the organisation as a Non-Profit Organization in 2006 for the purpose of community upliftment. The aim was to impact New Horizons and surrounding communities in a holistic manner.
