         Mamelani Annual Report 2009-10




    1. Message from the Director


    A   s we step into our 7th year at Mamelani, I am humbled by what we have been able to
           achieve since the first Mamelani seeds were planted in 2003. We are beginning to see the
     fruits of our hard labour. 2009/2010 has been filled with proud moments, accomplishments and
    successes. It has also been a challenging year, where we have had to brave the external elements
    of the recession and its impact, not only on the organization itself, but more so, on the people we
     serve. We have seen it as an opportunity to be innovative. Our experiences have confirmed that
      people and relationships are our most valuable assets – and that when we work together – we
                                    are able to face whatever may come.

     This last year has been a year of strengthening from within, both in terms of our programs and
       our team. Much of our work over this time has been focused on consolidating our programs,
        ensuring that we continue to respond to needs on the ground and adapt to the changing
      environment. Time has been prioritized to improve our monitoring and evaluation systems, in
    order to better capture the impact of our work. Our programs have grown over this year – and as
                    the programs have grown, I have watched the growth in our team.

     I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who have made this possible – our donors,
          partner organizations, program participants and the very dedicated Mamelani team.

    Mamelani is looking forward to walking alongside the men, women and young people who form
       part of our programs, supporting them on their journeys in reaching their full potential.

2. Message from the Board of Trustees


A       message from the board usually speaks about the state of finances, the successes and challenges of
        the organization in the year past and the brave new worlds, which the organization seeks to strive
towards in the year ahead. I would like this year’s message to be a little different: to focus not so much
about what Mamelani did or wants to do, but rather on ‘how Mamelani wants to be’.
      But it is de rigueur to briefly touch upon the year past, which I will do before we get into the heart of
the matter. The financial systems within Mamelani have been stronger than I have ever known them to be
since Monika has come on board. Mamelani, like many other organizations, faced challenges in raising funds,
due to the recession, and there were a number of anguished conversations about whether it can survive and
still hold on to the existing staff amidst acute funding shortages. However, some good fiscal measures and
funding strategies were put in place and Mamelani has bounced back into good financial health.
      The funding scare also put a different light on Mamelani’s ongoing programs and plans for the future.
A decision was taken to focus more on the quality and the deepening of existing programs rather than
spreading the organization too thin, where the center cannot hold anymore. This decision was perhaps
one of the best decisions that Mamelani made: with the funding ailments requiring a return to first
principles of ‘pay great attention to the little things and the big things will take care of themselves’. Some
of the programs were scaled down, the board was diversified to bring on new and needed competencies,
fundraising was brought back in-house and Mamelani was soon back on it’s feet.
      The crisis of ‘doing’ too much in Mamelani created the valuable space for some organizational soul
searching on ‘how to be’. Sitting back now and reflecting on what happened, the process reminded me of
ancient Greek philosophers, particularly Aristotle, who never tired of asking the question: ‘so therefore, how
must we live?’
      The relevance of this to Mamelani or any other organization is that it seeks to pause amidst the frenetic
pace of ‘doing more’ and asks ‘how does what we are doing contribute to the well-being of our beneficiaries
as well as the organization?’ This is not a wooly-headed question but a critical one for organizational
sustainability and quality.
      So when we talk about the health of an organization, it is critical that we aren’t just looking at bottom-
lines and outputs, but also asking more fundamental questions about how the organization can become a
vehicle to realize these important virtues: how can the organization facilitate the flourishing of the people it
serves as well as the people within it?
      The year past was a useful reminder for Mamelani that before it embarked on any grand plans, it is
important to have a long and hard think about what ‘growth’ really means for the organization. In an age
where we are bombarded by so-called truisms of ‘growth is good’ and ‘bigger is better’, the funding crisis in
Mamelani allowed it to pause for a moment, to apply the Socratic method and ask ‘why is growth good and
bigger better?’ Could it be possible that ‘small is beautiful’ and ‘less is more’?
      Mamelani is an evolving organization. It will be important, as they move into this next year, to continue
to reflect on their growth in this way to ensure that the services they provide continue to play an essential
role in building healthier communities.

                                                                                       Kabir Bavikatte, Trustee

    4. ORGANISATIONAL REPORT
    Board Development

    During 2009 Mamelani began the process of extending the number of trustees on the board of Trustees.
    As the organization has grown, the need for a larger board, with representation from each of our program
    focus areas has become essential. We are excited to list the dynamic people who have come forward
    to serve on the Board. Early in 2010 a formal induction process will take place to ensure the smooth
    integration of the new members onto the guiding structure of the organization.
         Existing members include Kabir Bavikatte (Natural Justice) and Lisa Brunton (Investec Property).
    Our new board members include Allan Taylor, Cindy Jansen (Dragonfly Consulting), Melanie Alperstein
    (Curriculum Development, UCT), Richard Rayne (Onsite Training), Sue Davidoff (Proteus Initiative) and
    Professor Thandi Puaone (School of Public Health, UWC).

    Staff Development

    In June 2009 Monika Edwards joined the Mamelani team as the operations manager. She brings with
    her a wealth of experience, having run an organization based in Khayelitsha for 7 years. An extended
    management structure became necessary given the growth in the size of the organisation.

    During 2009/2010 the following staff training was conducted:
    Cleopatra Sawuti and Nomvuyo Mbele - Project Management (Damelin)
    Thabo Jim – Introduction to counselling and family therapy (FAMSA)
    Gerald Jacobs – Introduction to Fundraising (Jill Ritchie)
    All facilitators attended training on Safe Infant Feeding and PMTCT (Department of Health)

    In April 2009 we moved into a new office in Salt River.
    Please note our new address: 20 Durham Avenue, Wesley College, Room 8, Salt River.

        # Context
        HIV/AIDS and non-communicable diseases disproportionately affect poor people living in urban settings.
        Diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease, all of which are on the rise, share common risk factors such as
        unhealthy diets, alcohol and tobacco use and physical inactivity. Large proportions of South Africa’s Burden of
        Disease can be attributed to these risk factors, all of which are potentially modifiable. Heart disease, diabetes,
        and stroke together constitute the second most important cause of death in adult South Africans. South Africa
        continues to be the country with the highest number of people living with HIV worldwide, and one of 10
        countries in the world where the infant mortality rate is rising.

                                   # Our Response - The Community-based health Education Program
                                   The aim of the program is to provide education and support through health promotion,
                                   nutrition education and treatment support to health-care workers, home-based carers,
                                   HIV and TB support group members as well as to the wider community. The workshops
                                   raise awareness and improve health literacy regarding how to prevent, treat and
                                   manage different illnesses, including accessing care on time, adhering to medication
                                   and maintaining optimal health through healthy lifestyle choices.
                                    A particular focus has been placed on sharing essential information with HIV positive
                                   mothers regarding feeding choice, in order to prevent transmission of HIV from mother

# Consultations
Some of the clients using the consultation service come from home-based care groups and community
based organization and these consultations provided the first real opportunity to deal with their personal
challenges, reveal their status and express the difficulties that they face at home. Issues dealt with have
included: Emotional support to individuals finding out their HIV status; counseling of victims of domestic
violence; emotional support and counseling to a mother who lost her child to HIV; provision of relationship
counseling to HIV positive couples; support to an HIV positive mother who was being forced by her in-laws to
breastfeed to avoid the stigma associated with formula feeding; assisting clients with opportunistic infections
to access appropriate care from clinics and guidance in how to manage infections at home and referrals to
support groups and clinics (including support in accessing and adherence to treatment).

  Mamelani will be partnering with Division of Human
  Nutrition, UCT to strengthen the nutrition component of
  the program in 2010.
  The Women’s Health Collective, a series of workshops
  on reproductive health issues, was piloted. This was done in partnership with ILRIG. The women who
  attended the workshop were part of Building Women’s Activism (B.W.A) and are active in their own
  communities.
  Mamelani facilitators trained two HIV support groups attended only by men. It is exciting to see men
  who are eager to learn about health issues and who are choosing to be active on these issues.


  Stories from the ground…

  One of the participants from LACAP (Langa Community AIDS Project) shared that the workshop was very useful to
  her, especially the information about HIIV and AIDS, because even as a home-based carer, she did not have this
  knowledge. Ikhaya Labantu group members thanked Mamelani for the information about nutrition, which they
  found particularly useful in preparing nutritious food for the children that they care for.

        Child and Youth Development

        “Young people should be at the forefront of global change and innovation. Empowered, they
        can be key agents for development and peace. If, however, they are left on society’s margins,
        all of us will be impoverished. Let us ensure that all young people have every opportunity to
        participate fully in the lives of their societies.” – Kofi Annan

                       # Context
                       Youth unemployment has grown to crisis proportions in South Africa. Statistics show that almost
                       three-quarters of the unemployed are between the ages of 15 and 34 years old. Sadly, many of the
                       unemployed youth reach the age of 30 without finding a job. This raises serious concerns about the
                       ability of these young people to be contributing members of their families, communities and society
                       at large. It is understood that gaining employment is more than simply accessing an income, but
                       extends to gaining a sense of self worth as one’s time is invested into something productive. Being
                       unemployed is a destructive experience, eroding a person’s sense of self worth and their ability
                       to support themselves and their loved ones. Youth at risk in particular, who don’t have family or

                            For youth who have grown up in Children’s Homes, without support as well as the opportunities
                       to gain meaningful employment, they will have no choice but to turn to a life of crime to survive.

                       # Our response
                       The aim of Project Lungisela is to prepare former street youth who have grown up in Children’s
                       Homes for the transition from living in institutional care to become independent and return to
                       their communities. The ultimate aim of the program is to ensure that youth take responsibility
                       for themeselves, are ready and able to work and earn a living in order to support themselves.
                       The program consists of lifeskills sessions, personal development, formal skills training, outdoor
                       wilderness therapy as well as internships and job placement.

                       The program has extended its reach to 35 young men in the last year. It has continued to support
                       15 young men who were part of the program prior to this year. Over this period 15 individuals have
                       accessed support regarding accommodation; 1 individual has attended a skills training course; 10
                       individuals have accessed internship opportunities and 5 individuals are now employed full time. The
                       youth have attended 2 camps and 8 outings.
                            One of the most profound impacts of the program is that it has instilled hope in the youth who
                       are still living in the Children’s Home – hope that they too have a chance at making a success of their
                       lives once they leave the Children’s Home.

  Stories from the ground…

  My name is Vusumzi Ngaki. I stay in Harare, Khayelitsha. I am 23 years old. In 2003 I met a wonderful lady named
  Carly while I was staying at the Elukhuselweni Children’s Home. I was leaving the Home because I was 18. In the
  sessions we had with Carly, she asked me what do I want to be in life? I told her I wanted to be a chef. Mamelani
  helped me to go to False Bay College where I studied to be an assistant chef. While I was studying, I worked briefly
  for a restaurant in town for about 4 months. I didn’t cope well in that job. When I finished studying, I looked for
  other work, but I was struggling to find. In 2009 Mamelani offered me to go on an internship for 3 months at
  Manuka’s, a restaurant in Steenberg. I proved myself there and showed them that I really wanted to work. When
  my internship was over they wrote me a reference letter that praised my work. Now I am on a 1 year contract at
  The Cape Peninsula Hotel. Project Lugisela s a powerful project that helped me and helps others who are part of
  the program to grow and be responsible for our lives. With all their support, I am now responsible for my life. I
  thank Project Lungisela and Mamelani for making me who I am today.

           In the last year, the facilitators have managed to develop positive
      working relationships with the children, creating a safe space and a strong trust relationship. They have also
      developed strong relationships with teachers and partner organisations to ensure that they are able to work
      together in ensuring that the children are supported as effectively as possible.
           In the last year, parents of identified children have attended counseling sessions and skills training
      courses, confirming their commitment to their own development and their commitment to their children.
      They attended home-based care, sewing and basic business courses. The parents attending training have
      shown an improved sense of self as a result of attending the training. They have already put plans in place
      for working together in 2010 as a result of the training they have been offered.

 her behaviour, as well as on the parent.
      The case of Sam, aged 10 is a prime example of this:                              When I have a problem,
 Sam, was reported by his neighbour to be sleeping in his garden, as he was             I know what to do and
 scared of repeated corporal punishment by his mother. His teacher said that            where to go. ”
 Sam often missed school, was showing aggression towards other learners and
                                                                                        – member of parent group
 his school performance was weak. When he came to the social worker, Sam
 was still grieving the death of his father two years ago and was struggling at
 the hands of his mother’s abusive boyfriend. Sam moved to live with his aunt
 not far from his mother, maintaining regular contact with her. He attended
 school daily without incidents of aggression and his school performance
 improved.Since joining the parent support group, Sam’s mother has left her
 abusive boyfriend. According to her, she wanted to change her life, look
 forward to the future, she was eager to learn a skill in order to provide for her
 children. As a result of this progress, Sam has moved back home.
 In this last term, Sam has successfully completed Grade 4. His mother has
 described him as a “new son” as a result of the change in his behaviour and
 their relationship. Sam also regards his mother as a different person, as a result
 of the counseling sessions and the impact it has had on their relationship.

     7. INCOME GENERATION
     Many of the women attending Mamelani’s workshops are unemployed and the need to
     include income-generating activities in the program has become clear.

     Lucky Spaji (Spaji means wallet in Xhosa)
     The first initiative comes in the form of a recycling project where women from our
     programs are turning boxes such as cereal boxes and tetrapak (juice) containers into
     wallets that look beautiful, work well and last long. These boxes are being carefully hand
     crafted into stylish practical wallets.
          The wallets are functional and fun, whether the wallet is made from a milk carton or
     a tea box, they are meant to make us think about our waste in a new way. The fact that           Jabulisiwe Mayephu,

     on our consumption patterns and encourage

AIDS Day Breakfast

On December 1st, World AIDS Day, Mamelani held a
fundraising Women’s Breakfast. Funds raised on the day
went towards the Communty-based health program. We
would like to thank Dani Jankelowitz and Gia Janks for
the time and energy they put into organizing this special
event for us, and Brett Jankelow, our speaker, for inspiring
us with his story.
