about wings of inspiration

Wings of Inspiration is a Christian based Non-Profit Company in Roodepoort, Johannesburg, South Africa. It was inspired by a family who had lived hard times, identified the need to help others and aspire to become part of the solution.

We would not be able to move forward without your kindness and generosity of the caring general public and business owner's such as yourself. We hope and trust you will find us a worthy cause to assist. We rely on donations of any form and sort to continue to be a blessing to others as others have been a blessing to us in the past. Remember that your gift helps others in need.

Wings of Inspiration is a registered Non-Profit Company, SARS Compliant and BBBEE Level 1.

What started as a dream following a family discussion in June 2016 between Kirsten Richardson and Anthea Da Costa whereby these twin angels came into an inheritance payout and looking back at their lives of struggle and challenges they were faced with the opportunity to leave their corporate hand to mouth lives and dedicate themselves to a long awaited vison and dream they had on their hearts ever since they dedicated their lives to a spiritual life in 2014. A life dedicated to helping others and being of service towards the communities and people in need. Their initial dream and idea was from a place of challenging life experience whereby they wanted to open up a woman’s shelter for destitute and widowed woman and children in need.

And so they agreed to leave it all behind and place their faith in God that their dream and vison to help others would come to life – so the first steps of action was to get appropriately registered and to find a property in order to house and facilitate the woman’s shelter from.

As life would have it, Rome was not built in a day and there was much legal work to be adhered to but this did not deter the twins and they started by doing selfless community service at Dorah’s Ark Orphanage, as the weeks went by in September 2016 they went into a joint venture with Dorah’s Ark to assist run and aid with funding and support for the children.

By October 2016 it seemed the twins had everything ready and in place and upon Kirsten spending a day at SARS handing in and finalizing the NPO registrations, she was approached by a woman out of the blue and was told that God had told her that Wings of Inspiration must assist her with her playschool in Mpumalanga.
