Jika Uluntu meaning to “turn/change community” was founded in 2017 in response to the extensive needs of the impoverished children and their families living along Jikeleza Route, the gateway to the Wild Coast in the Eastern Cape, South Africa.

Our Vision | The Why

Every vulnerable child accessing the opportunities to thrive!

Jika Uluntu strives to achieve its vision in a sustainable manner by strengthening families and their communities through partnerships, capacity building and support services.

Areas of intervention are health/wellbeing, education, and poverty alleviation.

Our Model | The How

With support from its founding donor a detailed community data analysis of the households and local stakeholders was conducted. This was the first step in designing needs-based interventions.

Jika Uluntu successfully delivers numerous community activities for the children and their families. These interventions are measured by a comprehensive monitoring, evaluation and reporting system which enables the capturing of qualitative and quantitative data at an individual and household level. This enables informed periodic review and reliable measurement of short term and long-term results.

JU’s model of care, currently supporting 90 households comprised of 335 individuals & 450 children in the primary local school.
