Vukukhanye provides management and governance support to a number of community development projects in the Ndlambe Region of the Eastern Cape - Bushmansriver Mouth, Ekuphumleni, Harmony Park/Klipfontein, Kenton-on-Sea and Marselle. These projects are the result of close collaboration with local welfare organisations (e.g. Child Welfare Kenton-Bushmans), local government, community leaders and business. Community-based projects include the care of orphans and vulnerable children, crèche/preschool development and support, support for those affected/infected by HIV/AIDS, community advice services, counselling, assistance with social welfare grant applications, and job-seeking for the unemployed.
In order to facilitate the success of such community-based projects in the region, Vukukhanye is providing management/administrative support; including assistance with fundraising and governance. It is however our intention to facilitate the registration of an independent, locally based non-profit organization (and then public benefit organization) to manage the work referred to above.
