Welcome to CINDI
Established in 1996, CINDI is here to help build communities and support children in need and has created and implemented a diversity of projects over the years.
2017 has seen significant new programmes being drafted and will be implemented over the next 3 – 5 years. Whilst societal needs are constantly changing, the basic issues and causes of many of these crisis have not. Global research continues to show that without ECD and other direct interventions, the future is bleak.
CINDI is proudly flying the flag of change and bringing to the forefront ground breaking interventions. We are very proud to announce that we have started the New Year with a bang! We have reviewed our Mission, Vision and Goals and very soon will have some exciting and ground breaking news to announce.
We would like to encourage you to get involved in our projects. Donations, CSI funds and in-kind donations are all welcome and given CINDI’s PBO status, you will be provided with a tax exemption c certificate.
Please visit Meet the Team where you will note that our Director Rekha Nathoo is President of Family for Every child, which involves a collaboration of over 23 international organisations, and is working in partnership with Department of Social Development, Department of Health and Department of Education.
Welcome to CINDI
The Children in Distress Network (CINDI), founded in July 1996, is a multi-sectoral network of over 200 civil society organisations capable of implementing diverse, effective and sustainable programmes for children and youth infected or affected by HIV & AIDS in the province of KZN. Membership is comprised of 80% community based organisations (CBOs) and 20% non-governmental organisations (NGOs). The vision of the organisation is to ensure children and caregivers access their constitutional rights through processes of collaboration leading to community driven action. They aim to achieve this by networking and capacity building contextually with the purpose of improving the lives of children, youth and their caregivers using methods that are child-centred and youth friendly. CINDI is a registered non-profit organisation (NPO) and public benefit organisation (PBO).
CINDI has been implementing child and youth programmes through its CBO and NGO network members in KZN for the last 21 years. For the past two years, we have successfully implemented a young women and girls (YWG) programme in uMgungundlovu and eThekwini Districts, reaching a total of 10 000 YWG aged 10-24 years. This is being done through NGO and CBO partners with good track records of service delivery in both districts.
We would like to encourage you to get involved in our projects. Donations, CSI funds and in-kind donations are all welcome and given CINDI’s PBO status, you will be provided with a tax exemption certificate.
