TRAINING FOR TRANSFORMATION (TfT) is one of the Grail programmes. It is a course designed for community development workers. TFT is founded on the philosophy that there is a need for a new generation of self-motivated leaders in development field whose thinking and practice is grounded in communities’ realities.

MTHIMKHULU COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT (MCD) helps empower communities in the Overberg and other rural areas in a just, sustainable and holistic way. We do this by providing services, primarily aimed at women, children, youth and the elderly, that addresses:  

       - Health: for the body, mind, heart and soul
       - Learning: school/ school support for kids and skills (life and career skills) for adults
       - Connecting: networks and events within and between communities and the world

THE GRAIL CENTRE is an ideal place for holiday accommodation, conferences and retreats. It is located in Kleinmond, at about 100 Km from Cape Town and 40 Km from Hermanus.
