NEW! Drop Down Now Included In Vertex

This month another new addition to the Vertex Framework is the S5 Ultimate Drop Down. This is a feature that was seen in several Shape 5 designs. Many have asked how to add to other designs so we decided to build this into the framework so every design here on out will have this functionality. Be sure to read more about this new feature here: Features:

  • Customize almost everything! Shadows, borders, gradient, opacity
  • Contains 6 module positions drop_down_1, drop_down_2, drop_down_3, drop_down_4, drop_down_5 and drop_down_6
  • Auto adjust to the height of your content
  • Set your own open and close text
  • And many more features!

We believe that we are called to assist people on the road to rehabilitation, whatever their situation or addiction may be. Our main aim is to see that people are welcomed into a caring fellowship of believers, and become vibrant followers of Christ.

Think of it as follows: Individuals who lack sufficient employable skills may easily end up living loose and shifting lives. This can be compared with loose and dry sand which, by itself, cannot be used to produce something stable and useful. Ophelp activities are like the mixing of concrete: sand, stone and cement, each of little use by itself, but skillfully mixed with water they can be used to build solid and beneficial structures.

Features of Ophelp Projekte are:

  • Projek Opruim/The Jesus Saves Project
  • School of life
  • Project Dignity
  • Graduation list
  • Project Homecoming
  • Beth Shalom

Ophelp Projekte are not job creation activities. They are a bundle of rehabilitation programmes for people who are not yet able to act productively and responsibly. These projects help desperate and destitute individuals to earn cash in hand, by means of honest and hard work, as an alternative to aggressive begging, theft or other criminal activities.

Important life skills are learnt and put into practice. While areas are cleared of rubbish and other undesirable objects, undesirable issues and circumstances are also purged from the streets, from people’s lives and from the community. They are also encouraged to become disciples of Jesus and join a disciple group. We call these interventions the “school of life”.


He who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something with his own hands, that he may have something to share with those in need.

Ephesians 4:28
