Sithand’Izingane Care Project is structurally sponsored by:

  1. SACBC – The South African Catholic Bishops Conference
  2. The Department of Social Development
  3. Mary Slack and Daughters Foundation
  4. There are also several private sponsors in cash and materials. Our sponsors come from the community in Langaville and Geluksdal, but we also have a lot of sponsors from overseas

Every year we also receive gifts from a school in Munich – Germany, donations from friends and family of our volunteers in the Netherlands and Germany and also stichting Intabazwe and Abantwane Belanga Foundation from the Netherlands are very helpful with donations for school uniforms, books education and transport.  Without these sponsors Sithand’Izingane could not exist and could not do the work we want to do, to empower the community and to fulfill our vision and mission. Donations are always welcome and it is a wonderful idea that people from the community and people from overseas think about opportunities for our children. We appreciate that you want to hold hands with us and with our children. Your donation makes a big difference in the lives of many children.

Our Wish List:
There is a list with some items that we really would like to add to our wishes. There are two big wishes that we try to realise:
1. building a LAPA (steal) structure for events, and also extend the current buildings. Due to the increasing amount of children and youth, and the amount of events for the community, we want to built a LAPA for events and after that, 1 classroom to be used as youth centre; and a stage for events and performances. 
 
Next to this big wish we have our other smaller wishes for the project.
If you are working in the corporate environment and part of the CSI Corporate Social investment program and interested to help us with one of these wishes, please feel free to contact us.
  
1. Benches to sit outside.
2. Tables for our classroom
3.Toiletries for the children.
4. Stationary for the children.
5. Art & Craft material.
6. Computers for our Youth Centre and classroom.
7. Big pots and pans for the kitchen.
