Mautse - settlement in rural Free State. Ma Tiga Fund is launching it’s first Women’s Dialogue.This is as a collaborative decision making dialogue aimed at coming up with sustainable solutions to the complex problems experienced within the community. This pilot project is taking place in the community of Mautse of Rosendal in the Eastern Free State. Activists and change-makers have been identified within Mautse. However, finance remains a constant challenge in making lasting change. Ma Tiga’s objective is to become the financial partner for community initiatives to achieve collective well-being. In the Mautse community, The community experiences a great deal of poverty and it’s effects such as GBVF, substance abuse, hunger. Unemployment currently stands at 70%. Much of the community are traumatised by being cast-off the farms they grew up on. When the state announced it’s plan for tenure security for farm workers and during the years 2011-2016 the population of the settlement doubled, and presently stands at an estimated 12’000 people. The municipality has not been able to keep up with demands of this rising population due to corruption within the municipality. Ma Tiga Fund launches the first of many group dialogues to be facilliated by a SeSotho speaking professional. We expect the outcome to be a working group geared towards implementing plans towards “ Achieving Gender Based Peace.”
TAKANE, meaning “teaching under a tree” is situated in Bloubosrand which adjoins Kya sands informal settlement in Northern Johannesburg. Takane Kids Pre-School was started by Caroline Libogane , and was registered as an NPO in 2010. She taught young children under a tree and from her lounge! After a time, her family had to move into one room to make way for more classrooms because the need was great: Aunty Caroline would take all children, and soon children with special needs were her speciality. Eventually, the family moved to another home in Bloubosrand making way to turn their former home into a formal school which now specialises in children without birth certificates (as well as always welcoming special needs children.) In 2021, the neighbouring property became available and TAKANE, with faith and friends moving mountains, became the owner of a second property and the school could open its doors to high-school children. The school hosts 130 full-time students, and another 30 attend Saturday school only due to lack of space. Let the sea of support raise R2 million in 2024 to buy the next property for TAKANE ACADEMY. Let us with our monthly Tiga’s (tigers / R10) aim to give these 30 children a full-time education and then let us spread the LOVE and double that number.
