This is a program which focuses on advocating for basic human rights in the communities we support. We have found ourselves remedying issues ranging from fighting for the right to running water at a school in Soweto, forcing government departments to assist families living with mental illness or disability, to the most horrific of all: children who have been trafficked or abducted.
We have been assisting 3 NPO’s in the Soweto area who turn to us for help with issues that they find difficult to problem solve.
The first is an organisation of social workers whom we have worked very closely with since 2014. We share ideas and skills, and we have assisted in raising funds for many of their beneficiaries., as well as having organized Christmas parties for over a thousand children annually, for many years. In 2021 we began assisting 2 very capable sisters in Protea South squatter community who are a lifesaver for their community. They are called on for just about everything. We rewired their home, waterproofed it and painted it. We then helped them to establish themselves as an NPO. Today they feed over 1000 hungry people weekly. They are growing from strength to strength. In 2022 we began working with a very established soup kitchen run by a formidable woman in Naledi. We share our expertise and our networking capability with them, we have helped with advocacy issues that they have encountered. They feed over 1000 people weekly. We purchase maize meal for both soup kitchens as well as support them with innovative programs that they run. We are a conduit for donations that we receive that are passed on to all three NPO’s.
