Beginet, distributing hope and dignity

Distributing hope and dignity through community-led interventions throughout South Africa is our vision.

Why the name "Beginet"?

Beginet Icon

That’s why our Icon is a heart with a play button inside. The colors represent life and growth.

The core word of Beginet is “Begin“. 

“Beginet” is actually an Afrikaans word that we misspelled on purpose.  The name ‘Beginet’ says ‘take action’! Don’t sit around and wait for better days. Just begin! Begin today! Begin now! 

Beginet as a non-profit organisation is inspired by our name. We do not want to sit on our hands and watch how people struggle. Throughout all our community-led intervention, we work hard to distribute hope and dignity.

At the same time, we inspire and guide people to take action and take responsibility for their own lives and relationships. “My marriage is in chaos.” Beginet here! “My children are disobedient.” Beginet here! “We have financial problems.” Beginet here! We Beginet to bring people to God and to each other.

BegiNET also want to be a safety net for people where people can find hope, dignity and rest. 

BegiNET is also a network. We work with others and organizations to ensure that all community-led interventions are successful. 

Begin today to journey with us. Together, we can spread more hope and dignity among more South Africans.
