As part of the Nation-wide Nelson Mandela day celebrations, the support staff of the Auditor-General of South Africa in Cape Town spent a day with Bancedeni Shelter in Site C Section D, Khayelitsha, recently.

This was borne out of a partnership with one of the Non-Profit Organisation called Kusasalethu Group, which has as a primary focus the upliftment of the lives of the disadvantaged people in Cape Town.

This initiative is part of the Kusasalethu Group Ithembalethu project, which helps less fortunate communities with the necessary resources in order to create a better future.

Bancedeni Shelter houses children aged between 0-12 years old. The children hail from various backgrounds, mostly from physically abusive, sexually tormented, emotionally depressed homes.

The shelter also acts as a foster care and facilitates issues of adoption in conjunction with the Department of Social Development and Welfare.

On the day of the visit, the shelter received food parcels, sanitary material for teenage girls, clothes and school bags and more than 140 kids benefited from the initiative.

The AGSA is vigorously driving social transformation though its Corporate Social Investment programme, so working and empowering NGOs such as the Kusasalethu Group allows the organisation to make a meaningful impact in the communities where it operates.
