Local organisation donates school uniforms
​Sisters at Work, a non-profit organisation donated school
uniforms to needy learners from ward 38 and 53 recently.
NON-profit organisation, Sisters at Work, has given back to the community to ease the burden on parents from disadvantaged communities. The organisation donated school uniforms to needy
learners from wards 38 and 53.

Founder of the organisation, Qiniso Ndebele, said since starting the organisation, they have donated to two schools, Mandlethu and Umtapo high schools in the north of the City. She said she started the organisation to assist young girls from disadvantaged communities who were born into poverty.

“As an organisation, we do not only support learners with food hampers, uniforms and pay their school fees, but we also provide mentorship, career guidance and host motivational programmes for young women and the youth.” Ndebele said her dream was to reach rural areas in the province. “EThekwini also has rural areas and townships which are affected by poverty and inequality, we want to utilise that space to empower young women and the youth in general,” she said.

She said the goal is to form partnerships with local schools, the provincial Department of Education and with children’s homes. “If we are to be successful in our endeavour to empower young people, we need government departments, parents and the community at large to be part of our mission and vision.”
