About Visit the Zulufadder Project

The Zulufadder project was started six years ago with the object to assist children who have been marginalized by HIV and AIDS, in the rural areas around Eshowe in Zululand, KwaZulu Natal. Today more than 1,000 children are assisted as well as around 450 families who have taken the children in, in addition to their own. The reason for this is that Zulufadder does not operate an orphanage but aims to house and support the children in their own communities with normal family lives.

The project is based in Eshowe, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, a town originally founded by Norwegian missionary Ommund Oftebro in 1861. Subsequently Bishop Hans Schreuder became the first person to record iSizulu in written form and translate the Bible into that language. Bishop Schreuder was born in Sogndal, Norway and today the towns of Eshowe and Sogndal have a close relationship.

The funding base of Zulufadder is entirely founded on individual sponsorship of the children by donors in different parts of the world, but principally in Norway. This sponsorship is allocated entirely to the physical and emotional support of the children and each sponsor is allocated a specific child.

The online database that contains all the details of the children in the project as well as daily information is readily available to each and every sponsor on the web site (see website link above).

While the project was originally limited to the provision of nutrition through the supply of food parcels and feeding schemes the nature of the project has changed dramatically during the past few years.

Tip / Recommendation
