Compass is a nationally recognized and registered organization through the Government in South Africa. Our team have researched the culture of charity on a global scale and pressure of the global socio-economic climate has forced the lower levels of society outside of our socio-economic structure. The result is that the poor, homeless, unemployed & uneducated live by their own rules & understanding of society, because of the lack of access into our world order and systems. Out of this naivety and desperation to survive, crime, corruption, abuse and lawlessness are born. The ones who suffer the most are the innocent babies that are born into this current world order. We recognize that even the heads of governments find it difficult to raise funds for their own countries. The key solution lies within the charities and Non-Profit Organizations (NGO's) that have access to funding and are actually willing to do the work required and not leave everything up to the government.
