Siyakhathala We Care is a registered Non-Profit organization (NPO: 068-260) founded in May of 2009 which works in the township of Khayelitsha, Western Cape, South Africa.


Siyakhathala improves the lives of orphaned children in the township, as well as victims of neglect, violence, abuse, and rape by providing a safe haven for at-risk children who would otherwise end up in troubling circumstances. 

We provide a safe haven, we educate and we run summer camps to give the kids, what can be, the first trip out of the townships.

Everyone deserves a safe space. 

We care for over 200 children in the townships.


This needs funding, our aim is to be self-sustainable, but any donations would help a great deal, anything you can give would be greatly appreciated and goes directly to the charity itself. 

We are township born and bred but we work alongside volunteers to improve our operation.

From cooking, education and general maintance we would welcome support of hands and minds to make the organisation the most positive experience we can for the kids. 

Improve the lives of township children. 

No child should be left unsupported. We create a safe environment, to get kids off the streets.


Whether shelter or just a well needed rest bite for struggling parents, Siyahathala cares.
