The project will be successful provided we are assisted with funding, a large home with a large yard.

The project will provide education that will change the children’s behavior.

The increased numbers of abused and orphaned children who need the home have made improvements and growth difficult as we don’t have enough space.

The project will raise awareness of HIV/AIDS, increase understanding and involvement in the community for people who are discriminated for this reason.

Long term goal for Ubuhle Bezwe includes two centers

  • 0-13 years olds
  • 14-17 year olds

We desire to have after school studies whereby children from different schools and the ones living in the center will be assisted with Mathematics, Science and English.

In spite of the successes achieved so far, the centre is still battling with space to provide a more decent shelter for the children. The growing demand for food, clothing and transport to school all added to inadequate governmental support and assistance has made matters all the more difficult.

Short term goal for Ubuhle Bezwe

The centre is still battling with space to provide a more decent shelter for the children and we are leasing our current home. Our greatest desire is to have our own facilities, our own place that we can call home and where the children can be free.

One of our other challenges we face daily is transport, as our children have to walk long distances to get to school as it is unhealthy for children to be moved around from school to school and there are certain procedures to follow in regard to that aspect.

Ubuhle Bezwe Child Centre sincerely appreciates your assistance in achieving the aforementioned goals and for helping our children to attain their life goals and aspirations.
