Further project information:
The Khazimula Children's Shelter, situated in a peaceful rural setting in the Lidgetton district, opened in January 2007 to provide a safe and caring environment for orphans and vulnerable children, until they may be returned to their families or placed in foster care by the Department of Social Welfare.
Father Mvuyo Ndenze and his wife provide love and stability for the children who live in three dormitories each with a house-mother or house-father. A cat and two pigs compete for the love of the children. Gumboot dancing, soccer, chess and a computer facility are other therapeutic activites that are encouraged. Boys from nearby Michaelhouse School and a very enthusiastic group of ladies (some of whom are ex-educators) visit weekly to help with homework and the after-school activities.
The children do organic gardening to provide fresh vegetables for the table.
Funders:Department of Social Development
