ZIKWANELE House of Hope is a non-profit organisation (NPO) providing a caring, nurturing, recreational environment for pre-school children in the community.

The organisation cares for destitute children from the ages of 18 months to five years of age and provide meals for the children attending the crèche as well as other children that visit them after-school. They also conduct sports activities and assist children with homework support. The organisation does not charge any school fees.

In addition, they have a vegetable garden project, which supplies fresh produce for the meals they cook as well as the food parcels that they donate to destitute children, and they also help people apply for identity documents, social grants and birth certificates by referring them to the relevant government departments.

However, the organisation is appealing to the community for assistance as they are still short of supplies at the crèche.

The founder of Zikwanele House of Hope, Princess Mngwango, said: “We commenced building a new crèche but, due to funding, I could not complete it.

“I’m appealing to the public to please help me by donating what they can to help me finish off this place so that I’ll be able to look after the children.”

The creche is currently looking for assistance with building materials (concrete, tiles, and paint) as well assistance with paying for construction costs.

Those who might want to donate towards Zikwanele House of Hope can contact Princess Mngcwango at 079 040 1480.
