MusaweNkosi was founded in 2001 with the vision of helping children that have been severely affected by the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
Children are the primary victims of this epidemic as often parents pass away leaving children alone or in the care of distant relatives.
Traditional family life has disintegrated with families being very dispersed because of travelling for work, sickness or death. This leads to instability which puts children in a very vulnerable position and they become key targets for rape and abuse.
MusaweNkosi works in two main areas; eNtoyeni and eNseleni. eNtoyeni is out in the rural areas to the north of Empangeni and eNseleni is a township to the north-west of Empangeni.
