New Kicks!

We are on the ground here in South Africa and Mamma Maria has wished for new shoes for all 28 kids in the house. They are in need! We are hoping to raise money to make this wish come true. If you would love to donate, please click below, “Buy Some Kicks.” One pair is only $16.00 Thank you!

Buy some kicks!

In collaboration with Maria and other leaders of Windmill Park, we have identified the following projects as providing the most sustainable outcomes for the local community’s development.  Your support enables these initiatives.

Trained Counsellors

In 2015, our volunteers built the ‘Angel of Hope’ Community Counselling Centre in Windmill Park. This centre provides free counselling to people dealing with trauma. Many women in the community have suffered sexual, physical and emotional abuse and have nowhere to turn. This centre offers education and support for common community issues such as sexual health, HIV prevention and domestic violence. We are raising money to fund the ongoing costs of the centre including for training and educating our counsellors, providing crucial services for people in crisis and providing education programs for the local community.

Send a Child to School

We know that education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty for many families in Africa.  But for many of the poorest families it is simply out of reach.  Each year the Kindling Foundation supports a growing number of kids to get an education.  In 2018 Kindling Foundation will pay for 20 kids to attend primary school, high school or community college.  Through a partnership with the prestigious school Laerskool Van Dyk we also send three of our most promising kids to one of the country's finest private schools. 

Your support will help us pay for the costs of schooling including school fees, equipment, books and transport.

Provide a safe place for vulnerable kids

In 2017, Kindling Foundation and our wonderful volunteers bought land and built a new creche and community centre in the town of Dennilton (170km north-east of Johannesburg).  With the support of the local community (and two kings!) our new safe space is a place where kids can come and be fed, educated and provided with basic healthcare.  We currently have 65 kids in our new centre and it's growing every day.

We are now raising funds to cover the costs of running the centre including paying wages for our teachers, covering the costs of food and providing electricity and clean running water.

Vegetable Garden

Last year we hired a gardener and planted a huge vegetable garden. It has been very successful and fruitful for the orphanage and creche, providing food and sustenance to the kids. This year we want to raise more money to purchase new seeds and supplies to keep the garden protected and producing.
