NGO's We Support

Nawe Zifunze

Nawe Zifunze Disabled Association is an NPO for people with disabilities.The organization was formed in 2003 by people with disabilities. Nawe Zifunze has got a center at Umzingazi village, in Meerensee where the members come to work on a daily basis.

The main objective of the organization is to assist people with disabilities in terms of skills development, job opportunities and job creation. We also provide them with assistive devices such as wheelchairs, crutches, canes, rubbers etc. by approaching companies around for donations 

There are 2 projects that we would like to formerly establish namely: Wheelchair and Desk manufacturing and repairing. 

Wheelchair Manufacturing and Repairs
As we are an organization for people with disabilities, we have identified a huge demand of wheelchairs in our communities because of the number of people that come into our center to ask for assistance with regards to wheelchairs. The organization have partnered with Rotary club of Richards Bay to provide assistance to the needy. Apart from that we fix old wheelchairs to assist people who at some point cannot get wheelchair from the program since we only get limited number of wheelchairs from the donors.

Walk in Faith


WALK IN FAITH is a registered NPO (Reg 174-466 NPO), as well as a PBO (Public Benefit Organisation) aimed at feeding and clothing the needy, with specific emphasis on poor households with children, the elderly, the disabled and other vulnerable persons.

We currently collect and distribute food parcels, sanitary items, stationery, clothing, medication and other household necessities to over 40 families in need. We also collaborate with other important stake holders such as Richards Bay Family Care, SAPS, the Zululand Observer, local schools, churches and other support organisations to alleviate pre-existing conditions, detrimental to the emotional and physical well-being of such families. These factors can include unemployment, substance abuse, gambling and domestic violence to name but a few.

 

In order to identify vulnerable children and families, we rely on help and guidance from community members and a small number of committed volunteers. Once the situation has been reported, normally directly to our chairwoman and founder, Merinda Ackerman, the circumstances of the family is investigated with their permission and cooperation. The investigation will include regular home visits, interviews and background checks. Cases which merit serious intervention, such as removal of children, are then reported to the relevant authorities. 

 

Due to the enormous pressure on state subsidised institutions and lack of places of safety, we however attempt to keep families together where possible, while they are being monitored, with oversight of trained social workers, counsellors and the police. Our services also include networking with organisations with possible employment opportunities to help families become self-reliant. We do not believe in creating dependence and the aim of every intervention, is to actively help the family unit to regain independence and economic participation.
