Vukukhanye Community Upliftment Initiatives

Vukukhanye is a Non Profit and Public Benefit Organisation that was established in 2001. Their aim is to support and care for vulnerable children and families, as well as orphans, in Chesterville in the Cato Manor region of eThekwini, Kwa-Zulu Natal.

For years, Frontline Underwriting Managers has been partners with Vukukhanye in order to strive to make a difference to people’s lives and their communities.

Amongst the many other projects and support they offer, these are their 4 main projects:

Children’s Foster Home – since 2001

Vukukhanye’s foster home is a long and short-term home for children who have been orphaned, abused, neglected or abandoned. The home houses 6 children at a time. Since its establishment in 2001, this foster home has supported and taken care of over 73 children.

Bursary Project – since 2008

Since 2008, Vukukhanye has had a bursary project that aims to help the youth of Chesterville achieve tertiary qualifications so that they can have careers and support themselves.

At the moment, there are 17 bursars being supported – 10 to children in school and 7 to youth at university. These bursaries are incredible as they include fees, text books, stationery and uniforms; and the recipients are supported until they have completed their tertiary education!

So far, there have been 8 graduates. Study fields include Science, Nursing, Marketing, Commerce, Social Science, IT, Financial Accounting and Civil Engineering.

Vukukhanye Educare Centre – since 2012

The Educare Centre enrols 55 children under the age of 6 years and their aim is to be a preschool for these disadvantaged little individuals. By doing this, Vukukhanye gives children the initial school experience they need in that area.

The priority of the centre is to empower the staff with early childhood education training and management skills to ensure the best for the learners.

The Educare Centre operates daily from 7:30am until 3pm and the children get breakfast, a mid-morning snack and a cooked lunch.

Welfare Support

Welfare support is provided to vulnerable families through a community worker, as well as 4 of the preschool staff, who visit the homes of the families and follow up with them too.

Social services are offered to families that are in need, including child-headed households. These families’ needs include counselling, food and household consumables, sanitary pads, infant formula, school needs and much more.
