We have got an orphanage where we look after 42 children. We have got a play school in Mpumalanga with 36 kids. A soup kitchen where we serve a hundred people food in the evening.

We have managed to do an orphanage revamp, give our under sixes at the orphanage a nursery school. The rural kids in Mpumalanga, we have managed to get them educated and now speaking English. We have managed to have a lot of success stories in our sober homes where fathers are now able to be reintegrated with their family members and their children.
