HOT stands for 'hela o itlamela' which means 'Do it for yourself', it is formed by a group of organizations which together decided to do something about the deteriorating state of our community, crime, poverty, drug abuse, unemployed uneducated youth. As a social organisation we decided together to pull our resources and change our communities for the better. We are open and we welcome any organisation that is truly willing to assist to join us to help eradicate our social ills. Hot is founded in Botshabelo, the second largest township in South Africa, but the first in South Africa to come up with its ambitious plans.
We all need food to develop as human beings, but healthy food will help develop a healthy nation. It is often said that 'you are what you eat', so we decided that our people should grow their own small gardens from organic seeds which are produced by one of our entity. We use permaculture to assist our members to grow their produce.
We regard education highly and as such we wish that our community should receive adequate training and education. We hold various workshops and training sessions from various institutions to teach our community.

Our Work Process
Our main goal is to eradicate poverty by taking action and using any resources we have at our disposal, and mobilising communities to work together in achieving that goal.
We intend to assist communities in all areas of development including help in acquiring finance for various projects undertaken.
As individual stake holders we sought to combine our resources, knowledge and experience to assist our communities in achieving the goals we all aim at.
We have young and old people alike who help by giving ideas that will help revolutionise our communities into self sustaining economies.
As different entities we are aiming at reaching the unreachable, by utilising technology to help develop better communities.
We regard people as most important, therefore we strive by all means to assist any of our people who find themselves in trouble, also help them keep them out of trouble by enforcing good moral standards.
These are some of the entities that form HOT Organisation.
