Malelane Hope Centre in Malelane, South Africa, feeds 215 children each week, with 5,500 meals distributed each month. The centre serves as a safe place where the children can play and interact with others. With the help of local volunteers, children are also taught to read and write. The care workers are encouraged to do home visits to make sure the children are safe outside of the time they spend at the centre. There is also Christian curriculum taught by the spiritual care worker on site. Malelane is a farming town not far from the Mozambique border. On its outskirts is a refugee camp where makeshift homes are full of people who have come over the border hoping for a better life. Instead, they have found unemployment and disease.

Sinani is excited for our Foundations for Farming partnership and its involvement with Malelane Hope Centre. Organic vegetables have been planted and will be used to subsidize the children’s meals. This is also a great income generating activity (I.G.A.) that we hope will be wildly successful for this community.  If you would like to learn more, volunteer or simply visit this community, please email: connect@sinani.org
