With initial start-up funding from the Oprah's Angel Network, and Charlize Theron Africa Outreach programme in 2006, Mpilonhle has raised more than two hundred million Rand (200,000,000.00) to date. This money was used for the betterment and improvement of the health and social well-being of the communities of Northern KwaZulu-Natal.
Mpilonhle regularly receives in-kind donations such as TOMS shoes, Sanitary pads, Soap, Food Parcels, Books, and Clothing to be distributed to the community. Mpilonhle also facilitates large scale Health Service interventions such as Vision Testing programmes and provision of Prescription Glasses.
Over 1200 Mpilonhle staff members - from senior staff to community workers- have contributed to the growth and success of Mpilonhle for many being it their first work experience with the majority hired from the local communities. Many have moved onwards towards senior jobs in government, NGOs and the private sector.
We want to thank all our funders and donors for the invaluable contribution they made towards the communities of Northern KwaZulu-Natal over the past 14 years.
