GriefShare’s goal is to help people to begin putting their lives back together again after experiencing the death of a loved one. Let this be your opportunity to turn your mourning into joy and take steps to move beyond the pain of losing a loved one.

What we are about

Love Howick is a catalyst in bringing people together for transformation and aims to unite our community for positive change.

We believe that we are better together and we endeavour to establish partnerships between key sectors of our local community to see our vision of a prosperous city emerge.

Love Howick Projects

THE STREET

STORE

There are so many great efforts to clothe and feed the poor across our communities but the Street Store concept is a little different in that it aims to give our ‘shoppers’ the opportunity to feel what it is like to choose their own clothes.

RENOVERGE

Project

The Renoverge Project is a coordinated approach to restoring beauty to the CBD, exits/entrances to Howick and Main Road areas.

PROMOTION CLIP

For Howick

This clip will be used to inspire the resident of Howick to dream BIG dreams for this town and to motivate outside people to invest in Howick,.

OAKLEIGH

HOUSE

The Church became increasingly aware of a need among the elderly in Howick and that is why we consulted with similar projects in order to create a space unique to the needs of Howick.

GRIEFSHARE

Community members who have experienced the death of a family member or friend are invited to register for the GriefShare program to be hosted. This programme will help with the process of grieving.

HOWICK FALLS PRECINCT REJUVINATION

Creating a safe and beautiful Howick Falls area, having the wonderful potential to becoming a destination/ place of choice for tourists, visitors and local families, friends and individuals.

THE DREAM CENTRE

Faced with the extent of the poverty and unemployment in the greater Howick area, the NPO ‘Love Howick’ has added to its list of projects an innovative education and training centre to empower the unemployed in the greater KZN Midlands region.

CITY PARKS PROJECT

There is a growing body of research showing a connection between human health and wellbeing and the design and structure of towns, cities and regions. This research suggest that designated ‘green spaces’ within urban settings provide a number of benefits, namely: health benefits associated with access to public open space and parks.

Ready to ‘paint the town red’ in 2020? Love Howick, well known for coordinating efforts to see transformation in our community launched their 2020 vision to an enthusiastic crowd of volunteers and donors. ‘When we put our hand up to do something positive instead of criticize, then we all win’ was the charge from the Love Howick team who are appealing to the Howick citizens to get involved in one of the 7 projects aimed at improving Howick. They are appealing to the community for consistent partnership in making Howick great and encourage everyone to visit www.lovehowick.com and sign up as an agent of change. One hour of service or R50 a month can go a long way to seeing the change we all desperately want to see. ‘Lets all get involved,’ was the clear message from last weeks Vision Night.
