Usindiso Ministries

Shelter for Women and their Children

The shelter for women and their children was extended earlier in 2009 to include the 2nd floor of the facility and now has the capacity to accommodate 120 women plus their children. The extension happened due to the need for sheltered accommodation increasing and also the need to separate the abused women and children from the homeless women and children.

Young Women

Usindiso Board Directors and Management made the decision to incorporate the Teenage Girls Shelter into the Women’s Shelter to be able to focus on our main objective, namely ‘Women’. The fourth floor now accommodates young women aged from 17 to 21 years, who are at school, studying further, or are in a training programme.

Little Fish Nursery School and Crèche

'Little Fish' is a fully fledged Nursery School that is part of Usindiso Ministries. The Nursery School runs from Monday to Friday and has up to 40 children, who come from the shelter, and the very needy children from the surrounding community. 

The children are aged from two to six years, and are taught according to the Montessori method, which does not divide the children by their ages, but they learn and develop according to stages and the younger children learn from the older ones.
