What is the Kolping Society?

4a230e a268d1fba3d04ea4bd5f31c86ede460eIt a group of people sharing a common vision, purpose and values, who work together to achieve a common goal. The society was established in Germany in 1849 and was founded on the African continent in 1952. The society is based on the belief that society can primarily only be changed by changing and developing the individual in all areas of his/her life, i.e. work, family, religion and society.

We assist those that are:

  • Unemployed
  • Helpless
  • Alone
  • Feel inadequate

We will help them to:

  • Take responsibility for their own future
  • Discover and develop their skills
  • Be the best that they can be

The primary project of the Kolping Society is is Work Opportunity Programme (WOP), founded by Kolping South Africa to address the problem of unemployment among young people in South Africa

 The Kolping Johannesburg family, like all Kolping families, relies on the generosity of the public and corpoporate sponsors to achieve its objectives.
