After experiencing Saturday’s events it became clear that those wonderful children were teaching me life-skills too!

Sisanda FunDaytion is a non-profit organisation working with volunteers to influence the lives of disadvantaged children in South Africa through recreation, education and inspirational fun. 

Our vision is a world in which all children can experience the joy of being children and have the chance to laugh, run, jump and play. Through our programmes we harness the energy of volunteers to help our children learn about and enjoy the wonders of the world they live in.

Baphumelele - Pre-Funday Visit!

Monday in Khayelitsha. What an inspiring way to start the week! We visited "Baphumelele" (meaning "you have progressed") in Khayelitsha as we are taking 40 of their wonderful children to the Cheetah Outreach Reserve in Somerset West. This FunDay will enable them to explore and encounter some of South Africa's beautiful Wildlife. "Mama Rosie" founded this project in 1989 and since then it has grown phenomenally. In addition to the Children's Home and Educare Centre, Baphumelele has expanded to include the Adult/Child Respite Care Centre, Hospice in the Home, Child headed Households, Fountain of Hope and Rosie's Bakery and Sewing Project.
