Philemon: “I seriously damaged my right knee while splitting a log of wood. If it weren’t for Mamvundle and Monkeybiz, I would probably have been unemployed with very little prospect of finding a new job.
Monkeybiz supports over 450 families which is partially funded by donations and gifts.

Financial donations

Financial donations are allocated to the following community services we provide:

  • Providing families with a sustainable source of income
  • Encouraging creativity and artistic development in bead art products.
  • Establishing sustainable community services
  • Soup kitchens
  • Financial services
  • Burial society

Donate towards food

Good nutrition is vital in helping people living with HIV/AIDS who do not have the time or resources to eat properly - so donations of food improve their lives considerably.

**Please note that we can provide tax exemptions for US citizens.
