The Grail Centre Trust is based in Kleinmond, Western Cape. This Non-Profit Organisation delivers two programmes, namely Training for Transformation and Mthimkhulu Community Development Programme. In addition, The Grail Centre Conference and Retreat Centre can accommodate groups of up to 40 people.

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 need for a new generation of leaders in development who are self-motivated and whose thinking and practice is grounded in communities’ realities.
