THE Matimatolo community got together to form the Siyabathanda Abantwana child and family care NGO to give families and the young an improved quality of life. Based in the deep rural area of Matimatolo, it is Ward 2 within the Umvoti Municipality.

The organisation runs a crèche and is highly appreciative of the generous support of Letcee, which sponsored the popular Toy Library and Jungle Gym. These facilities provide quality early childhood education and development.

The NGO also takes care of physically challenged individuals, shelter for the homeless and HIV/Aids care and information.

An important aspect of the work done by this community organisation is the “Abahambi” volunteer workers, who visit the homes of parents, who are unable to afford the crèche fees, as well as child-headed families, vulnerable children and orphans.
The Abahambi voluntarily teach the young children literacy, numeracy, and how to read and write at their home.

Being a non-profit organisation the management team is appealing for donations to upgrade the facility and establish a soup kitchen and at least two more classrooms.

Management is very grateful for the recent donations received for the graduation day from individuals, businesses, NOGs and others.

For more information, contact Mr A. Nxele (chairperson) on 072 749 2939.
