Uhambo is a Zulu word that means “a journey”. We strive to build an organisation that serves as a vehicle for the journey of changing Africa – one child at a time – through education.
We are a registered Non-Profit Company (Uhambo Africa NPC 2012/225961/08) that was established in 2012 for the sole purpose of providing educational support to disadvantaged schools and children. We are also a registered Non-Profit Organisation (117-295 NPO). We currently operate in Johannesburg, South Africa with plans to expand throughout Africa as the organisation grows.
Given the challenges facing the education system in South Africa and many other African countries, we have decided to focus our efforts on helping schools to provide extra tutorial classes on Saturdays in order to supplement the formal classes conducted during the week. These extra tutorials are conducted by volunteers on Saturdays.
