Financial Support

Although Makabongwe has grown over the years, we continue to serve a community with many needs and requirements. There is always something new to add to our wish list.  We also require non financial support. For example, volunteers to take children to excursions and manage a small group, operation clean up, sewing, overseeing computer activities, reading to the children or teaching them a new form of art.

If you or your company are keen to support our project, please contact us and we can discuss how best you can get involved.
