Ha Phororo Youth Retreat Centre, Hartbeespoort is a community of people drawn from all walks of life, brought together by a common search for spirituality and a commitment to live the Gospel values of integrity, responsibility and respect for all life. This ecumenical centre with its clear Christian foundation, deeply embedded in the catholic tradition draws its inspiration from the Taize community in France, our experience is however truly African.
Our vision is to be a community brought together by a common hunger for spirituality and for living out the spiritual dimensions of life. We are committed to living the shared values of integrity, responsibility and respect for diversity and interconnectedness in our everyday lives, through working on our personal growth, serving each other and taking pride in the work at Ha Phororo.
Our mission is to accompany young people in their search for a deeper spiritual life, to grow holistically by developing practical skills and knowledge, building character and instilling human values so to equip them to become functional members of society.
