Masicorp - partners in education and enterprise
Masicorp works for the people of Masiphumelele township, where more than 38,000 people still live disadvantaged and poor by the legacy of apartheid.
Masicorp always asks the community where and how they need support from us; we never propose a solution before we research and properly understand their needs. In every area of our work, we have found, from their response, that the residents of Masiphumelele want a hand up, not a handout.
We help through education — the surest route out of poverty. Our education projects, for pre-school to adult learners, are now our main work. We also support community entrepreneurs in developing their own small businesses.
We've been established in Masiphumelele since 1999. Our work makes a real difference to the lives of people there.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to join our team as a fundraiser, a donor or a volunteer. You will be made very welcome — there is so much still to do!
