Let us tell you about Sibusiswe:

Sibu was founded by 7 like minded 20– and 30–somethings, who all shared a vision that the fortune that we have been afforded in life should serve as a base to uplift the communities around us.

Vision

To see people become self-affirmed, prosperous individuals who share
their prosperity and thereby instigate change in their communities.

Mission

Our mission is to equip people in the Western Cape with the necessary skills that will enable them to take responsibility for themselves, their families and their communities on a sustainable/long term basis.

Values

Love
"Love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything." ~ 1 Pet 4:10
Passion
"Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and muscle and intelligence and that you love your neighbour as well as you do yourself." ~ Luke 10:27
Integrity
"Love and truth form a good leader; sound leadership is founded on loving integrity." ~ Prov 20:28

Sibusisiwe Community Care strives to work around four basic principles of self fulfilment, and all our projects are built around one or more of these:
