Orange Farm Tuition Fundraiser

Our annual fundraiser for Orange Farm begins in January and will run until Easter Sunday. A $25 contribution allows a child in Orange Farm to attend school for a full year. Please make your checks available to CCRC and put “Orange Farm” in the memo line. Checks may be dropped off or mailed to the church. We were able to support 160 students. CCRC has been contributing to Orange Farm schools since 2004. Thank you for your continued support.

Orange Farm is a township located approximately 45km from Johannesburg in Gauteng Province of South Africa. It is the southernmost township of the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality. Its name, a misnomer given that oranges are grown in orchards instead of farms, has Dutch origins. It is one of the youngest townships in South Africa, with the original inhabitants, laid-off farm workers, taking up residency in 1988. Support for the population came slowly mostly from people who were tenants at the larger township of Soweto.
