Philanthropy

Harrison Nash went on a gap year visit to South Africa in 2007, working at a school and children's home in Port Elizabeth. He has dedicated much of his life since to either working as a volunteer in South Africa or raising money for the Protea Primary School and the Maranatha Children's Home.

The charity is named and registered as Maranatha Care Children and Harrison has set up a website to promote the work in South Africa and to encourage financial support from individuals and organisations in the UK and elsewhere in the world.

In 2010 Harrison said of the charity that, "Our aim is not only to provide a suitable home environment, but also to safeguard the futures of those in care…All children are entitled to grow up in a safe, healthy and nurturing environment. But at Maranatha Care Children we also want to empower children and young people to fulfill their potential."

Harrison wants to use funds raised by the charity to help towards the cost of providing long term education and job opportunities for the youngsters. He said that "Our central ethos is long term involvement and looking at empowering and protecting the children and young people through to adulthood and their integration into society and independence.”
