Uthando Community Projects is a series of varied developmental initiatives in and around Cape Town. The work done by the projects varies from orphanages, homes for the elderly, environmental projects, as well as theatre and dance classes for kids.

Meeting the projects

When going on excursion to one of the Uthando projects the organisers handle the whole thing in a very considerate manner as they do not want to interfere in the daily affers of the people involved. Many of the projects are directly related to the normal daily lives of the local people. For example, visiting an orphanage for children too often may interfere with the daily rythm in such a home. As such these projects are only visited once every two weeks or so. A good example of what is very possible is visiting a ballet school where young adults practice and perform on a faily basis. Some of the children participating turn out to be so talented that they are offered scholarships at prestigious universities around the world.

A portion of the costs for this excursion is being donated to the uThando foundation. This excursion's itinerary changes daily, depening on which projects can be visited on a certain day. Whether you participate in a drumming session at the Hout Bay Music Project, visit a nursery in the Khayelitsha township, or attend a "gumboot" performance, you will always go home inspired and touched by the great work done here.
