Welcome to Ukulapha
The Ukulapha Outreach Project was formed with the objective of facilitating the growth, development and empowerment of South African people.
Our goal is to help people in their community, mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually manage emotions, build self-esteem and facilitate social upliftment, revitalizing the vital spirit of Ubuntu.
Ukulapha Outreach Project
Ukulapha is a grassroots community project in Slangspruit & Imbali in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal province in South Africa; offering support to orphan headed households & families with vulnerable children. At this stage Carolyn & team members are volunteers. Key areas include providing support to orphan-headed households, co-ordinating scholarships, assisting Slangspruit Primary School, a grade 3 reading group, counselling & skills workshops & an adult literacy program. We aim to bring people from all different backgrounds together to bring about healing & growth.
Ukulapha is Zulu for 'healing'
What we do.
We stand in solidarity with the community, offering support in various ways which unfold as funds become available.
In 2007 as Carolyn was to return to South Africa for an annual visit to research the establishment of Ukulapha, a friend in Victoria, British Columbia, Joel Goldsmith, offered to fund college education for an impoverished youngster.
Hearing the story, Carolyn’s friend Mags Johnston was touched by Joel’s generosity and thoughtfulness; immediately she and her husband offered funds for groceries for a granny tending her orphaned grand-children.
