A Few Words

About Us

We are a National Ministry with a presence in Correctional Centres around the Country. With our partnership with Prison Fellowship International (PFI), we have quality assured programs that are presented in the Correctional Centres as part of offender rehabilitation:
-transforming lives
-breaking the cycle.

We believe that: all people have value, deserve mercy, and are loved equally by God. Even the most outcast.
With your help, we can restore hope and share God’s redeeming grace with inmates and their families around the Country.

Why we're able to do what we do

PRISON FELLOWSHIP INTERNATIONAL

Each year we sign a Charter agreement with Prisonfellowship International. The Charter agreement gives us the right to bring the 3 programs inside the Correctional Facilities of South Africa. The Charter agreement is a Partnership between Found by Grace and PFI. PFI provides part funding for the programs,which includes paying a stipend to two fulltime programme coordinators and we then need to raise the balance in order to bring these programs to the inmates.

We very much appreciate the support we get from PFI and would like to invite you to also support this mission of following Jesus inside the Correctional Facilities.

Siphosenkosi Dlamini

Director

I am Clarettah S Dlamini and I am a community worker . I have worked at Daimler Chrysler as a Credit Controller and at Business Multi Skills College as a financial Manager before I went into doing community work full time.

I love to see communities being developed and I have worked with a number of war torn communities in different nations doing counseling and inner healing for individuals and groups of people. It is my great pleasure to see communities rising from grassroots level and being able to stand on their own with the different skills imparted to them. This has led me to work with individuals in prisons specializing on Spiritual Intelligence and that has motivated me to see myself working with Found by Grace so that I can continue to work in prisons and bringing reconciliation to those who need it.
