About us

Where We Work
Located on the western border of the Kruger National Park, we operate in the township of Acornhoek, historically one of the most disadvantaged areas of the country where the vast majority of people do not have easy access to quality education and health services.

In this area:

^
Only 5% of households have flushing toilets
^
45% don’t have running water at home
^
2 out of 3 of households live without an employed adult
^
30% of the population dies of HIV and TB
^
1 out of 3 is younger than 14 years old
^
1 out of 3 of teenage girls fall pregnant
^
1 out of 3 of schools have no toilets or only basic pit latrines
