The process framework followed is listed below:


  1. Announcement The announcement inviting NGO nominations and submissions was done in February and the deadline was on 8 April 2018.
  2. Submissions Submissions took place between February – April 2018.

Several efforts and extensions were granted to all institutions that were nominated and/ or (self) submitted to supply all and/or any outstanding documents necessary for consideration by the interim, internal GBR preselection committee.


  1. Internal selection process The internal selection committee met and developed a framework and matrix for the internal selection processes, external selection panel as well as NGO site visits. The Internal Selection Process identified and established a selection panel who were fully independent of GBR and GFFJ at the time.
  2. Matters to be considered includes the training for NGO’s, the involvement of more GBR leaders in future processes and researching into similar award programmes .

On the 1st of February 2014 at the GBR Prayer Camp and Retreat held at Alpine Heath in Drakensburg, South Africa, the cash mobilisation campaign was launched. It saw approximately 130 GBR members pledge to offer monthly for the first three years in support of the vision. 

The campaign has now escalated to all our Roundtable meetings and branches and is becoming fully extended within the organisation.

The campaign will run until Jesus comes back. It is the GFFJ’s intention and hope to see millions of people around the world committing to give weekly or monthly to Vision 2020 and its programmes.

Connect with us to find out more about the campaign, and to partner with us as we change the world.


In order to follow the example of Jesus in facing the challenges of the less fortunate; to be a brother to the lost and the disadvantaged, a voice to the voiceless, a helper to the helpless and a source of hope for the hopeless.
