Melela4children was founded in 2016 by INDIRA MELELA LUBAMBO. M4C’s approach addresses the root cause and the plight of many children who are stricken by abuse and poverty. Our Children in most local Primary Schools come from poor families. They cannot attend school even where Public School is free due to everyday life challenges. They lack emotional support from their families, lack of funds for mandatory uniforms, school supplies and food.
M4C reverses this trend by working with two local Primary Schools (SOBAMBISANA PP SCHOOL and SAKUMLANDELA PP SCHOOL), and children’s families to enable them to attend school including Saturday classes. We provide Saturday classes, emotional support (sponsored by careways) Sisanda Vani is responsible for our class of 2017 who deeply suffers from psychological challenges. From 1 June 2017 Dis-chem will donate toiletries amounted to R1000. On a monthly basis, we do educational/active learning trips to places like the Cape Town Science Centre. The Anti-Animal Cruelty League is supporting us with a monthly animal wellness campaign as part of our educational/active learning programs. When these children receive the care and nurturing by M4C they will reach their maximum potential via high education or vocational training and other life skills training.
We believe that each child holds within him or her potential greatness.it is believing in this greatness, nurturing it and empowering children to become the best they can be, that marks this new age of positive life. This is literally helping them to gain a sense of inner confidence, courage and strength to conquer whatever hurdles life present.
