Mathanjana

Each year the Mathanjana social centre manages to further its reach deeper into the community. It is one of two SOS facilities in the province of Mpumalanga meeting the needs of this eastern community.

Supporting: 201 families, 647 children, 15 adults

Mthanjana regularly spearheads programmes based on the needs of the community. And there is never a dull moment! After securing land from the local tribal authority, the team began a communal Vegetable Garden project.

At the end of last year’s education support project, 64 children were successfully promoted to the next grade at school and 11 children passed grade 12. A ‘Safe Park’ initiative has also been started to give the local children a safe place to play and for the centre to cater for developmental activities to take place.
