In 2021, Irish charity SERVE worked with 11 partners in 8 countries. In Ireland, we also launched a new volunteering programme and a SDG education programme for schools. Despite the pandemic, SERVE has received generous public donations to continue its work that contributes to the Global Goals.
Tsholofelo has a long history of working with people in squatter camps in Rustenburg in the areas of early and primary education, health care, TVET and advocates extensively on behalf of communities with the local government. SERVE have partnered with Tsholofelo since 2005.
Tsholofelo has strong relationships with local government departments and has established and successfully handed over a number of health, education and TVET interventions over the past 20 years.
Tsholofelo is focused on:
(1) establishing early education within squatter camps;
(2) establishing Foundation Level education in camps where there are no education resources;
(3) developing and handing over health clinics to local management; and
(4) providing TVET & Adult Basic Education and Training (ABET) training to people with no education or skills background.
