Employment for 5 Young Women Caring for Children

Nomakhaya shows little ones to do bark rubbing
Nomakhaya shows little ones to do bark rubbing

Unemployment in the Eastern Cape, South Africa has just risen to 51%. In the face of such devastating statistics, the Ibhabhathane is employing 5 women who had no employment prior to the start of the organization. Not only are they earning an income to support their families but are creating a career path that holds the promise of a professional qualification in Early Childhood Education which will offer opportunities for them and their children.

Although we are receiving a government subsidy that covers half of our expenses, paying wages and stipends to the people who actually keep an organisation like ours running is challenging.

A caregiver at the Ibhabhathane Centre earns $120 per month.  Your heartfelt giving can help us to offer a sense of security and a glimmer of hope to these women who are courageously walking a path in order to create a better life for themselves and their families.

We sincerely thank you for supporting the Ibhabhathane

Warmest greetings

Yolande
