The heart and soul of South Africa's peoples resides in its rural areas. Within these diverse communities, each with its own history, traditions and cultural heritage, they are also places of neglect, isolation and poverty. None are more adversely affected than women and children.
Focusing on vulnerable children, we support South African community organizations that address the impact of poverty in rural areas.
We are a US non-profit foundation with a thirty year history of working in partnership with South African organizations. Through our current grantmaking program, we provide resources to organizations with programs for vulnerable children living in rural communities.
We provide small grants to rural organizations with programs for vulnerable children, ages 0-6. The programs often reach into remote, inaccessible areas, where educational and health services along with transportation and employment opportunities are virtually non-existent.
Over the decades in South Africa, we have provided resources to a vast number of organizations across a range of sectors. From health to education to gender equity, the majority of these organizations share one common feature: a commitment of service to people living in poverty.
