Thank you for your interest in empowering vulnerable children and families in South Africa.
Your donation will directly fund our ongoing programs in Langbos, a rural informal settlement in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. These programs include daily healthy meals for 30 vulnerable preschool children at the Langbos Creche (preschool), new educational initiatives through the Langbos Children's Shelter, and education sponsorships for promising young adults in Langbos to attend college.
Our mission is to improve the lives of vulnerable children in South Africa by developing and supporting community-driven initiatives. We work directly with vulnerable individuals, families, and community-based organizations to design and launch impactful initiatives together. Our approach is based on a fundamental belief that local community members hold the insights needed to uplift their communities. Our goal is to provide a platform of tools and resources to empower these community leaders and locally-led initiatives with support from around the world.
This year, donors around the world have made a number of Intsikelelo projects possible, including:
- Conducting research in impoverished communities in the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal provinces, building deeper understandings of the challenges, opportunities, and cultural values in these communities.
- Supporting the Langbos Crèche (preschool), promoting the healthy development of 30 vulnerable children and supporting struggling families in an off-grid informal settlement.
- Creating new educational opportunities for vulnerable students, re-enrolling 9 primary school dropouts and sponsoring 5 first-generation college students.
- Completing construction of the Langbos Children's Shelter, building a monument to community collaboration and creating a platform for new initiatives.
These projects are only possible through the generosity of supporters around the world. We hope you embrace this opportunity to empower vulnerable children and families.
