South Africa

Rhiza is active in South Africa within the townships of Johannesburg and Cape Town. We have three programmes there which are linked and contribute to the progress and sustainability of the communities. The programmes are aimed at nursery education, education of youths and basic medical care for children and young parents.

Preferably, people in the townships provide for their families and themselves without external (financial) support. In order to achieve that, the situation of massive juvenile unemployment, limited access to decent nursery schooling and lack of available basic healthcare needs to be improved.

Diepsloot and Orange Farm in Johannesburg and Fisantekraal in Cape Town are the three townships Rhiza's work in South Africa focuses on.

IT students volunteer at Sinekhaya preschool

Johannesburg. The I.T students at the Diepsloot Skills Development Centre volunteered to give their time to children at Sinekhaya pre-school. They helped out with cleaning, helping teachers with art activities, taking care of the children, and doing other chores.
"Where I come from we were taught how to share and give our time to others as much as we could because not everything is about money, but giving time means a lot to other people. It was a good experience, we had fun and cleaned the place very well," said one of the students, Phuluso Muronga.
