Our mission is to improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children in South Africa by developing and supporting community-driven initiatives and connecting them to the world.
Our projects include children's homes, after-school programs, and community centers. We work with these organizations to improve their organizational structure, operations, and fundraising in order to help them carry out their missions more successfully and sustainably. We also work with the South African Department of Social Development and various local and international charities and businesses to create meaningful partnerships that align these different resources to maximize impact.
Our goal with Siluncedo is to provide immediate and individualized care directly to orphans and vulnerable children. Siluncedo is an after-school program that provides academic tutoring as well as individualized attention and mentoring to orphans and vulnerable children. It launched at the start of 2015 at the Home of Safety, and has already expanded to a second children's home in Khayelitsha. The initiative is led by established local leaders, Simphiwe and Zukie Mabuya, who have been working with orphans and vulnerable children for over 20 years. We were able to help Siluncedo by providing the initial seed capital to launch, and by helping them establish connections to children's homes and schools in Khayelitsha. Currently, the program is hoping to expand to reach even more children in need.
