I have had the privilege of working with the Gamede family over the past few weeks.

The Gamede family have established a non-profit organisation called Qiniso Trust whose aim is to protect family stability in the community where “child-headed households” are rife. Many children are left orphaned by the rampages of HIV/AIDS and related illnesses and many children are left in the care of teenage siblings. Hundreds leave school unintentionally because of a lack of financial resources.

The Qiniso Trust is currently looking for a property in Kyalami which can be expanded to house up to 35 children at any point in time.
