Mamelani at a Glance

Mamelani at a Glance

We work with people in ways that strengthen their resilience by building on their strengths and connecting them with resources and opportunities. Our work is participatory and experiential – providing opportunities to learn by doing and to learn from others’ experiences. At the heart of what we do is the belief that change is made possible where relationships are strong. Our work opens up spaces for reflection and listening – so that we can continue to deliver programmes that respond to our ever changing reality.

Mamelani has been working hand in hand with World Childhood Foundation for the last 4 years. The Foundation works to prevent abuse and exploitation of children. They support and implement over 100 projects around the world, assisting children who are at risk of or are victims of abuse, children who are in alternative care, street children, and families at risk. The goal of The World Childhood Foundation is that no child should be exposed to a violent or damaging environment, but instead have the opportunity to grow up with memories of a safe and loving childhood. The Foundation has offices in Brazil, Germany, Sweden and the United States. What we appreciate about the Foundation is the quality of the relationships they build with their grantees, as well as the way in which they connect grantees with other projects around the world focusing on similar issues. Given that they provide support for specific target groups, they have built a rich understanding of the context and are supportive of innovative and responsive interventions. What is also unique about the Foundation is that aside from supporting the projects implemented by organisations, they also invest in building the organisational capacity to strengthen the interventions. We are very grateful for their ongoing partnership with us!
