Cunina wants to leave a lasting impression in the places where they are active. The goal of our projects is to help the local community become independent and self-reliant. As a partner, you are not just a sponsor but also the driving force behind the realization of the project.

Why has Cunina started this project?

The sewing workshop consists of one classroom and the woodworking workshop consists of two. The girls learn to sew, they can even make their own uniform! The boys learn to make objects out of wood like for example a mini library, a bird box or a breadboard.

The students learn important skills at the skill center. Some students can even make it their profession. The school makes products that can provide operating resources.

We work together with the local community and use local materials to support the local economy, create jobs and provide even more children with education.

I would like to ask a question about South Africa

Why does Cunina operate in South Africa?

Access to quality education is not guaranteed for children in poor rural regions and the teachers are often low-skilled. Every year, thousands of teachers die from AIDS. More and more children lose their parents to AIDS and from then on they are on their own. Education is the last thing on their mind.

Cunina operates in Eshowe and Underberg.
