We serve the people of Mpumuza, commonly known as Sweetwaters, and to give them a hope for the future through education, empowerment and new skills. We are particularly passionate about the new generation - the children and youth.

Our passion extends into two areas - the moral fibre of the youth and their education. We believe that if a new generation of men and women can step into adulthood with a high level of education and strong moral convictions, the community of Mpumuza will experience a new hope for a much brighter future.

The Sweetwaters(or Mpumuza) community is vibrant and rich in culture. The people are welcoming and hospitable, and the children are full of life, laughter, and fun. Mpumuza is set in the beautiful rolling hills covered with lush vegetation during the summer months.

Sadly, this beautiful area is also characterised by poor housing and a limited supply of essential services and facilities. Poverty is rife, and most people lack the skills or the capital to produce food of their own. Unemployment is high and many families rely on government grants to survive. Opportunities for employment are limited. Many residents do not have the skills or education required for the few available jobs. Many local business owners testify to how difficult it is to find people with the basic skills required for many jobs. There is a direct correlation between the high rate of unemployment and the low level of education amongst the people.

We attempt to create as sustainable an environment as possible, and are constantly learning new and better ways of doing effective community development.
