Community Outreach

Imbali Handcraf – Handmade embroidery crafted by Zulu women at Dusk to Dawn on the farm “Wagendrift”. Imbali Handcraft started in 1988 after recognising the hidden talent of the Zulu Women. Imbali is a job-creation project offering a form of income for otherwise unemployed Zulu women living on the farm.

Thol’ulwazi Thol’impilo Network – The Thol’ulwazi Thol’impilo project was founded by Johann Engelbrecht in 2007. As a local farmer and member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Southern Africa, he and many others, became increasingly concerned about the rising prevalence of HIV and AIDS in the local farm worker community which resulted in a staggering number of mortalities and an increasing absenteeism from work.

Paulpietersburg Dementia Care Unit – With the increasing prevalence of Alzheimers Dementia in the elderly population in the area, a team of local volunteers have embarked on the exciting, yet challenging journey to establish a Dementia Care Facility at the Paulpietersburg Christian Retirement Village.
