Sinakekele Children, founded by Ruth Grobler, is a non-profit organization located outside of Durban, South Africa, which takes in abandoned babies.  I was heavily involved with them for 8 years and because of them, I cannot shake off this desire to get back and continue working with them and help out other non-profits such as themselves. 

Please watch the video, which was filmed and edited by the founder's amazing daughter Tarryn, to learn what Sinakekele is about. Ruth is a hardworking, honest women and I have seen her strength persevere since she started Sinakekele 20 years ago.  Sinakekele is a very worthy cause to donate to and volunteer at!

Local attractions for international volunteers are the beaches of course!  It is about a 30-minute drive to the Indian ocean and UmhlangaUmhlanga Gateway is a good place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Sinakekele for shopping, movies, restaurants, and entertainment.  A fun place to go to beat the heat is uShaka Marine World or if you prefer learning about sharks you can go visit the Sharks Board.  Outdoor enthusiast?  Maloti-Drakensberg Park is about a 2 and a half hour drive or you can visit Hluhluwe Game Reserve   If you want to plan a longer road trip, I highly recommend the Garden Route starting off in Cape Town. 


For more information, please visit Sinakekele Children or contact me.
