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 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.
