Life at Sibongile - Nomasango Xabanisa - The Director

Anytime that you think you have hit the top of the mountain, the truth of the matter is you have just reached another mountain, and it’s there to climb over again. At every new level you will meet a new challenges.

When I built Sibongile for my children I made sure the foundation was God.
In my deepest moments, what has really got me through is prayer. Sometimes my prayers were “Help me God’’ and sometimes “thank you, God’’.
I have discovered that intimate connection and communication with the creator will always get me through because I know my support, my help; it is just a prayer away.

As Maya Angelou says” When you get, give. When you learn, teach. These are the life lessons I live by at Sibongile.
Ever since I started looking after children with disabilities, it has been a humbling experience. I have come across speed bumps along the way but as Robert Kiyosaki states” If you are the kind of person who is waiting for the ‘‘Right time’’ for things to happen, you might wait for a long time. It’s like waiting for all the traffic lights to be green for five miles before starting a trip.
“God has been my driving force and through it all I have come out stronger, that’s why I have decided to hold the bull by its horns and organise very interesting events at Sibongile.
There are a lot of new and interesting events coming up so be on the lookout.

These past few months made me remember why I started the organisation.
I wanted to give love to children, children with special needs and whom are under my care, and make a difference. God has been my support structure and he keeps on enabling me to spread the love as wide as I can.
I want to thank everyone who keeps on supporting Sibongile, May God continue blessing you abundantly.

What to Look out for:
Special programs for children with disabilities taking place through parental meeting between Sibongile Day and Night Care Centre and the Community at large
Nelson Mandela Day, the Organisation will be accommodating visitors from different places, in groups, and or individually to come to the centre and spend some time with our children, more specifically to emphasize acceptance and maintaining the love that Sibongile Day and Night Care Centre has for our Children.
Women’s Day hosted to motivate all the mama’s together with other staff that are hands on with our children on a daily basis throughout these children’s lives
Sibongile’s Beauty pageant - Mr and Miss Tiny Tots - will be used as a form of integration between children with disabilities and children with non disability, and to to eliminate the stigma that disability seems to carry in our community.
Annual General Meeting - To report back to our sponsors and community at large

“For I know the plans I have for you” Declares the lord.
