“Our children are our greatest treasure. They are our future. Those who abuse them tear at the fabric of our society and weaken our nation.” –  Nelson Mandela

Ubuhle Bezwe strives to alleviate children from their state of despair by providing some essential services that enhance an improved livelihood.

In essence, our projects address the problems faced by orphans and vulnerable children in underprivileged societies together with people infected and affected by HIV/AIDS and other related illnesses. As such the organization seeks to tackle the problems they face within a broader community-oriented framework. We seek to set children free from deprivation. Above all, it is worth mentioning that Ubuhle Bezwe has the children at heart and thus makes conceited efforts to ensure that they are will fed on a daily basis. Food is the most basic need that humans need. The organization’s performance cannot be possible without the support from donors, hence we appeal to your organization for assistance.

“Our children are the rock on which our future will be built, our greatest asset as a nation. They will be the leaders of our country, the creators of our national wealth, those who care for and protect our people.” – Nelson Mandela



Ubuhle Bezwe was established in 2000 as a non-profit non-governmental organization,

and has initially been operating since 2005, providing services to less fortunate children. In our day to day operations we accumulate expenses and as a NGO any assistance is greatly needed.

It is situated in Tembisa, Gauteng South Africa. This centre only takes kids from 0-18 years and, Ubuhle Bezwe was founded by Barbra Mthimkhulu who identified the needy children in the community of Tembisa in Gauteng. Currently running the home as the director, Barbra identified children in her community suffering; Children with HIV/AIDS, children without parents, street children who were hungry & begging for food.

Barbra then took it upon herself to open her home and heart to the children in need and for that matter an initiative by providing a loving shelter.

In the space of 12 months, Barbra discovered 42 children who need permanent shelter. Currently the centre supports 75 children in Tembisa Community with food parcels, clothing and shelter. Children at the centre range from days old to 21 years. Most of these children were referred to the centre by Tembisa Crisis Centre and SAPS Children Protection Unit.

The aim of the organization is to help kids who are destitute and suffering; some have no parents, some are infected with HIV/AIDS and some are homeless.
