A big “Thank you!” goes out to my colleague who shared this video with me yesterday. I’m sharing the video and the information shared on the YouTube page where the video was posted, in full. Addo is next to Addo Elephant National Park.
Please watch and share.
This video takes place at the Langbos Creche & Care Centre in the informal settlement of Langbos in Addo, South Africa. Langbos represents the poorest of the poor among communities in South Africa, as it has no running water, electricity, or paved roads. The HIV rate is estimated to be over 50%.
The Langbos Creche & Care Centre serves as a kindergarten, a community center, and a home for orphan children. It runs on solar and wind energy, which provide the only electricity in the entire informal settlement. It also contains a permaculture garden that yields healthy vegetables for the children and has created multiple jobs for adults.
Our nonprofit Intsikelelo is currently working with the Langbos Creche & Care Centre to improve their community outreach programs and to help build a new orphanage to be a home for 10-16 children in the community.
Our mission is to improve the lives of orphans and vulnerable children in South Africa by developing and supporting community-driven initiatives and connecting them to the world.
