Jesus teaches that God has entrusted us as his stewards with that which is temporary (worldly wealth) to provide for that which is eternal (true riches). The Church consequently pursues its vision and mission through its ministries resourced by the tithing of its members. Benevolence through spiritual and/or material support in both out-reach and in-reach activities is a keystone of stewardship.
Tumelong Mission was established in 1939 as a mission and development wing of the Diocese of Pretoria to focus on the actual needs of the people and to provide material and other means of support to those in need regardless of religion, race or creed.
Tumelong aims to build a self-sustainable quality of life through the provision of skills and support to the needy and vulnerable to overcome hunger, poverty and unemployment.

Irene Homes’ history dates back to 1904 as an organization that took care of girls and young women in Pretoria and Witwatersrand who had fallen pregnant out of wedlock, been caught up in prostitution and where destitute.
At first the organization operated from a house in the CBD of Pretoria and in 1909 it relocated to its current premises in Irene and became a much needed home for women who are intellectually disabled. 108 years later Irene Homes has firmly established itself as a non-profit organization providing residential and day care support and skills training to women and men who are intellectually disabled with the ultimate goal of improved self-awareness, self-growth and job creation.
