To protect against the dangers of the alcohol and drug abuse epidemic, Khayamandi partners with the community to build/renovate safe houses and churches. Local residents are employed to help with the construction, allowing us to support the community without negating self-sustainability.
Community Begins with Caring.
Unfortunately, many children are neglected, abandoned, left on doorsteps, dropped at the Social Security offices and forgotten. This led to Khaymandi’s partnership with Ella, a local woman who rescues these babies and children. When asked how we could help, Ella simiply said, “I need a house.”
Khaymandi built her “Lukhanyiso Safe house” that has housed so many orphans over the years. Currently, Khayamandi is looking to relocate Lukhanyiso to a larger home in a safer area. Ella needs to be able to accomodate more children and provide home school space, as the township schools are not able to provide a good education for these children. A full time teacher works with the learners and Khayamandi provides the financial support. Providing a place to live, vouchers for taxis, food for the family, is not just support but an investment in the next generation.
