About Us

means Faith

The NGO was named after 2 inspirational souls. Boikanyo a dynamic special 8 year old child, and Dion Herson a philanthropist who loved giving to others.

Boikanyo the Dion Herson Foundation is a non-profit organisation working with households in impoverished communities. We work in deep rural areas all over South Africa, as well as supporting various projects in Gauteng, which assist very needy residents.
