About us

The Friends of Mponegele Aids Orphans was set up in May 2002 to provide financial assistance in support of the work of Mponegele Ke Itirele, a registered non-profit organisation working with AIDS orphans and other vulnerable children in the Mankweng area of Limpopo Province, South Africa.

Our aims are to:

  • Improve the children’s access to basic needs such as practical support in the home, emotional support, education and training, food and clothing;
  • Improve access to entitled government grants, relief from paying school fees;
  • Help with their studies, craft training and career guidance;
  • Advance the public education and awareness of the needs of these children and their households; and
  • Promote AIDS awareness by running community workshops.
