About Homo Novus
Homo Novus is a non-profit company. We act as the hub of a network linking partners to one another. Our partners are working in various fields, ranging from childcare, to skills development, education, and advocacy on the terrain of HIV and AIDS. Homo Novus works alongside an array of organisations, businesses and departments that help to further the development of communities.
The mission of Homo Novus Community Projects (HNCP) is to be a network partner for those who work and serve in the community contributing expertise in training, the management of projects, and building of capacity for other NPO’s.
HNCP was established in 1997 as a volunteer fund-raising body for a satellite home of Abraham Kriel Child Care. Since 2002 the organisation was repositioned to support a number of Community projects contributing to the management of strategy, finances, and capacity building projects. The focus on child care remained, but was complemented by training programs. From mid-2015 Homo Novus Community Projects embarked on an exciting new phase in the organizations development when a full-time operational manager was appointed to increase the organisation’s capacity and to expand the reach and impact of Homo Novus Community Project into the community.
Since 1997 Homo Novus has been helping volunteers to make a remarkable difference among communities that require attention. We receive and channel donations, money and in-kind donations, to the various projects we partner with.
