IMISEBEYELANGA SERVICES


Imisebeyelanga Services is a Non-Profit Organization founded in 2004 when awareness was raised that community volunteers are sent out into their respective communities, without proper skills, to care for terminally ill and frail persons. Volunteers were all working in rural and impoverished areas.

Our heartbeat is Train, Equip and Empower every NPO and individual that we come into contact with through serving in various fields and areas.

Imisebeyelanga Services acknowledges diversity, advocates equality and pursues dignity and non- sexism. We believe that acceptance and compassion are necessary first steps to solving the gender inequality in our communities and country.

Imisebeyelanga works throughout South Africa and our current focus is on Gauteng, Limpopo, Mpumalanga and North-West Provinces. Gauteng includes areas such as Soshanguve, Mabopane, Ga-Rankuwa, Klipgat, Moeka, Ga-Mmotla, New Eersterust, Winterveldt, Ratjepane, Swartdam, Hebron and Temba.

During the existence of Imisebeyelanga Services, we have built a solid track record with several Government Departments and national/international funders as one of the preferred service providers.

Providing own finances for training is a major challenge in marginalised areas due to poverty and poor socio-economic conditions. Through assistance with funding and/or sponsorships applications for ECD training, VEP workshops and outreaches, capacity building for NPO’s and services amongst the LGBTI community – Imisebeyelanga work towards assisting to strengthen the core of our Country.
