What we do for the children
Provide safe communal facilities or care centres where volunteers cook food, serve meals and have daily gatherings with the children. We recruit volunteer caregivers to support the children’s primary needs and development.
Sizabantwana addresses their immediate needs and the larger issues in the community, and we strive to ensure that they have a bright and hopeful future.
