Mabopane Foundation

"Dumela!"(Greetings in Tswana, the language of Mabopane, South Africa)


Mabopane Foundation, a North Carolina based nonprofit organization was created in 2003 to provide shelter, food, clothing, and education to orphaned, abandoned, abused, or otherwise disadvantaged children in Mabopane, South Africa.  We invite you to visit each page of this website and learn about this very special ministry.  The children's pictures will capture your heart and reveal that they experience joy in spite of their difficult circumstances.

"Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me." Matthew 25:40

Situated in the northwest province of South Africa, Mabopane is a poor and industrialized township neighboring the cities of Johannesburg and Pretoria.  Millions of people have settled in the Mabopane area with hopes of finding employment. But jobs are scarce, poverty high, and disease rampant.  

​The dedicated volunteers who give tirelessly of their time, both here and in South Africa, combined with the resources of those who pray and contribute, have had a positive impact on hundreds of children.  The love of Jesus freely shared has enabled many to develop their own sense of purpose and belonging.  The educational opportunities that are available have given children options for their future and allowed them to set goals and have dreams. Together, lives are being built that are purposeful and productive.

​Be a part of building lives and having an impact on the world!  Join the journey with many of us who are holding these children in our hearts and working hard to provide a future for them that is full of hope and promise.

Together, with God's provision, we directly support orphaned, abandoned, abused, or otherwise disadvantaged children in the township of Mabopane, South Africa and beyond.
