About us

About us

We were established in 2005 as Gamalakhe Development Support Group. It all started with a simple but concrete request from a local church in South Africa which wanted to do something for HIV/AIDS afflicted children and families.

Our focus is to support children’s growth and development in the Ugu District, South KwaZulu-Natal. The Ugu district has 720,000 inhabitants, where 20% are under 20 years old. It is the area of South Africa which is hardest hit by the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

Our philosophy is to generate significant and lasting changes with minimal resources. We do not offer emergency relief, but instead support grassroots projects built on local foundations. The mainstay of our work is volunteerism.

So far we have delivered 23 projects aimed at giving children and youth a better future. The work is financed through fundraising campaigns, corporate sponsors, foundations, and individual donations.
