Moving OnSiyaphambili means "Moving on" in the isiXhosa language and is the guiding principle of our organization - helping those left vulnerable by AIDS and poverty to move on with their lives.
Siyaphambili is also giving the local clinic a pot of soup and bread 3 days a week, and sometimes fruit. We have to help each other in these very difficult times.

Food Forward SA has partnered with the Solidarity Fund to ensure that we reach the most vulnerable households in our community with essential basic food provisions during the lock down, which has now been extended by a further 2 weeks. FoodForward SA warehouse in our region has contacted Siyaphambili so we can collect the stock from the warehouse and distribute the food parcels – enough to make up food parcels for 150 families, all done with our volunteers.
Beyond Zero trained the staff at Siyaphambili from Nov. 11th – 20th, 2019 in sustainability – how to manage, monitor and evaluate. Siyaphambili is most grateful and will now be able to put into place structure, policies and follow-through from all that has been learned.
Wish by Amanda Rose features both Fine and Fashion Jewelry. Charity is very important to us here at MLG Jewelry. Starting in January of 2018, each month we will be making a donation to Siyaphambili, which is an orphan village based in South Africa. Our donation will help children and young people who are affected by AIDS, and who suffer from food insecurity and poverty. https://mlgjewelry.com/collections/wishbyamandarose
Siyaphambili is most grateful to Amanda and her jewelry line for its new, ongoing donations to our work.
Recently there has been some attention given to Siyaphambili Facebook page for there being distasteful inappropriate content being posted under our name. Siyaphambili Facebook page was hacked into and inappropriate content was placed onto it. We take this matter very serious and condemn such behaviour as it goes against our values and ethics as an NGO that advocates for children’s right.
We cannot emphasis the severity of this matter as it as direct attacks on the standing and the work which the organization is doing. We have reported the matter with Facebook administrators and will be keeping a close eye on the page. Please do alert us when and if inappropriate content that has the potential to discredit the work we are doing. In South Africa child neglect and child abuse are realities which Siyaphambili is working on minimizing with Government and other NGO to ensure that our children’s best interest are looked after in accordance with the Children’s Act as stipulated in the South African Constitution and as emphasized by our mandated work within the Siyaphambili Constitution.
We reiterate again we condemn this foul behaviour and action will be taken to address this incident.Siyaphambili’s mission is to restore children’s dignity and security by providing a home for them that gives them hope, care, security, protection and comfort. Siyaphambili advocate and protect the rights of children and vulnerable people by providing emotional, physical, health and psychological support to them and the family members who are available and present.
