Community upliftment programs

  • To raise funding for the wellbeing of the vulnerable members of our communities.
  • To provide support and education to support the vulnerable members of our communities.

Our current community upliftment program is based in Lufhereng (situated near Protea Glen in Soweto). “Lufhereng" was derived from a Tshivenda word and Sotho words, 'Lufhera' and 'reng' respectively, were combined to a name that refers to a place where people come together with a united commitment.

Through this program we aim to empower every girl child (12-15 years and 15 upwards) in this community. Lufhereng is a residential development by Gauteng Government to provide housing for the vulnerable community members who mostly stayed in squatter camps before this housing project.

Most families in this community are young children raised by grandmothers or single mothers, many of of us know these kinds of settings. The culture of sugar daddies and blessers is taking away the innocence from our female children.

Often the female children in this area give up on themselves way too early in life and succumb to teen pregnancy, blessers situation, dropping out of school etc. Instead of focusing on studies and growing up, their day to day living becomes a major stumbling block to their future.

We believe reaching out to the girl child here will help provide a different perspective to life. They will know who they are and believe in a positive future for themselves. We are currently involved in two ways:

Collecting toiletries

These include toothpastes, toothbrushes, roll-on, sanitary towels, bath towels, body lotions etc.). Our desire and our aim is that no girl child in this area will lack basic toiletry items every month. With unemployment and teen pregnancy at record high, we hope to encourage a girl child to sparkle and focus on her future and not to worry about having basic needs that each child should have.

Running self-awareness, identity, empowerment and personal development workshops.

During school holidays in December, we will be running our first holiday workshops to equip this girl child, “Embracing the Growing Me” and “The Power of Choice”
