Let us tell you about Sibusiswe:
Sibu was founded by 7 like minded 20– and 30–somethings, who all shared a vision that the fortune that we have
been afforded in life should serve as a base to uplift the communities around us.
To see people become self-affirmed, prosperous individuals who share
their prosperity and thereby instigate change
in their communities.
Our mission is to equip people in the Western Cape with the necessary skills that will enable them to take
responsibility for themselves, their families and their communities on a sustainable/long term basis.
"Love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything." ~ 1 Pet 4:10

"Love and truth form a good leader; sound leadership is founded on loving integrity." ~ Prov 20:28
