MEMBERS of the Mfundoyethu Foundation, based in the eNtembisweni area, donated shoes to needy pupils from three local schools outside Greytown recently.

The schools that benefited from the programme were eMgaga Primary, Ntembisweni Primary and Ntandoyethu Primary. A total of 50 pairs of shoes were handed over to the three schools.

The NGO is also running community forums at Ntembisweni and surroundings for issues such as woman to girl child development, counselling support, local abuse matters advocate, a big sister programme, and community and school’s engagement

The organisation runs another project, called Imbumba yamadoda, to empower all men in the community.

Imbumba yamadoda tackles issues like male fraternity regeneration, big brother programme, restoration of the father figure in the society, behavioural disciplines of the family and community values.

Member of the foundation Mxolisi Kunene said: “We have another programme called Abasizi bemipheumulo.

“This forum is formed by different church leaders. It unites all churches in the community and assists the community with spiritual issues.

“We want our community programmes to flourish in all areas under uMzinyathi District.

“Our main challenge that we are facing at the moment is insufficient resources and sponsors.”

According to Kunene, the organisation aims to visit other schools and donate to other needy pupils in the area.

The school thanked the members of the foundation for their donations.
