There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children
- Nelson Mandela


Sisanda FunDaytion is a non-profit organisation working with volunteers to influence the lives of disadvantaged children in South Africa through recreation, education and inspirational fun. 

Our vision is a world in which all children can experience the joy of being children and have the chance to laugh, run, jump and play. Through our programmes we harness the energy of volunteers to help our children learn about and enjoy the wonders of the world they live in.

Creativity to the rescue!

Pablo Picasso was right. Every child is an artist. At Sisanda, we believe in learning through play and more importantly, developing healthy forms of self-expression. We are very pleased to be partnering with the Butterfly Art Project ( to share our resources, ideas and dreams. And more importantly, we are excited to spread the creativity far and wide and to encourage the artist in each child.

"I don't give lectures or a little charity. When I give, I give myself" - Walt Whitman 

And that is exactly what our inspiring colleague, Anja, did. She gave of herself in all that she did and created incredible programmes for both our beneficiaries and volunteers. We are very sad to see her leave Sisanda FunDaytion but we know that she will be a part of our team in other ways! So, instead of goodbye, we will 'See you later!'
