It all begins with a school uniform

The Imibala Trust is a registered South African NPO which works with children of school-age whose lives are affected by impoverished circumstances. The Trust provides a platform from which to offer programmes that make a substantial and measurable difference in the lives of the children, currently and as they prepare for their lives after school. All children, regardless of race or creed, are assisted through these programmes.

The flagship programme which affects the largest number of children annually is the Sponsor-a-Child programme. The effects of persistent poverty continue to compromise children’s futures and hamper their dignity, safety and ability to thrive in the school system. Through our school networks, are identified and assessed for support from Imibala. A network of generous and faithful donors, has developed over the years.
