Community Development

“Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.” - Mother Teresa

 

Here at KWO, we consider ourselves blessed to be part of change in the community around us.  In particular, we have the privilege to be the only non-profit organisation providing services in Lethabong.  

 

Lethabong is a relatively new rural community in Donkerhoek.  What this community lacks in infrastructure like water & electricity, they make up in heart and a desire to improve their circumstances.

 

We have established an Early Learning Centre in Lethabong that caters for 110 children.  We have also started women's empowerment groups as well as projects for the youth that focus on holistic development.  

 

An example of one of these projects is the Turbo Tigers Kickboxing Leadership Academy.  In partnership with Fighting Fit Gym, we provide 12 children with the opportunity to train and take part in a formal disciplined sport.  We also work in close partnership with the children's parents, teachers and community leaders to ensure they are equipped with life skills.  Our social auxiliary workers monitor their academic progress to ensure they are focused and motivated to achieve.  

 

If you would like more information on our community development projects or would like to become involved please contact us on (012) 940 0221
