Orphans Left In Lurch

Lack of funding threatens the future of a Soweto-based Centre

The Emndeni Skills Development and Orphan Drop-in Centre, which offers activities such as food schemes, farming, business and computer skills to 550 Soweto residents, faces financial crisis.

The Centre’s programme manager, Nomaswazi Mhlaba, who says that they have applied for Lotto funds in January last year, states that, "Normally, it takes up to six months for the whole application and funding process to be completed."

Mhlaba maintains that the Centre, which had been previously funded by the National Lotteries Board (NLB), has not received any response from the National Lotteries Board.
