Kulu Manzi

Kulu Manzi is an association that aims to support children and young adults in South Africa on their way to a better life. Sport and education for us are the most important instruments for developing a personality and can provide a way out of poverty. We cooperate with partner organizations in Cape Town, which, depending on the project, take on the implementation of the projects on site or support us with the organization.

Our name

“Kulu Manzi” is Zulu, one of eleven national languages ​​in South Africa and means “big water”. Water is the element that unites us all. It consists of many small drops that together make up the big picture. Each one is of great importance and the movement of the individual leads to a wave that extends through the collective. Water is the source of all life. We want to create a positive wave so that the children of Lavender Hill and other young people from the many townships in Cape Town can have a better future instead of drowning in their hopeless situation.

Our guiding principle

Kulu Manzi stands for transparency and efficiency. It is very important to us that the donations from our supporters reach our projects in Cape Town without any detours. The focus of our actions is always on helping people to help themselves: We do not want to promote short-term measures, but rather give children and young adults the opportunity to stand on their own two feet with our help.
