About Us

HACT is a non-profit, faith-based organisation that was founded in 1990 as a ministry of the Hillcrest Methodist Church.  

Our mission is to provide unconditional love and hope to HIV/AIDS impacted communities in the Valley of 1000 Hills region through interventions addressing prevention, care, community empowerment and income generation.

Our vision is an AIDS-free Valley of 1000 Hills.

Our objectives include:

  • To comprehensively assess the status and needs of everyone who approaches us for help
  • To provide holistic, individualised care for people living with HIV/AIDS
  • To economically empower people living with HIV/AIDS so they can adhere to their ARV medication
  • To provide relevant and inspirational HIV/AIDS education and awareness programmes
  • To empower and care for at risk groups– such as orphaned and vulnerable childre and grandmothers
  • Through the above, provide unconditional love, hope and dignity to those impacted by HIV/AIDS

Our values are:

  • Passion: to serve with passion, energy and commitment, always acknowledging the privilege it is to be helping others.
  • Faith: seeking to do as Jesus would do:  “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.  By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” NIV John 13: 34-35.
  •  Integrity: the message and the messenger must be the same, we must practice what we preach and be honest in all things.
  • ‘Ubuntu: ‘I am because you are’ – being community driven and constantly aware that our actions impact on those around us and that the sum is always better than the parts.
  • Empowerment:  helping people to take ownership over their lives
