Siyabhabha Trust ProgrammesA common thread throughout all of our programmes is that we work with marginalised communities most affected by poverty in rural and urban (informal settlements and townships) of South Africa, Botswana and Swaziland. We seek to promote self-reliance and sustainable livelihoods by engaging communities in developing their own solutions to poverty.
