Zodwa Khoza Foundation Entrepreneurial and Sports Development Centre
We have partnered with the City of Joburg who have provided us with land to construct the entrepreneurial and sports development centre in Diepkloof, Soweto. Our funding is provided by the Employment Creation Fund administered by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). The centre will provide the Diepkloof community with an array of empowerment opportunities through skills and sports development.
Zodwa Khoza Day Hospital
Also in the pipelines, is the development of a day hospital for the community of Diepkloof and surrounding areas. The day hospital will service referrals from surrounding practices, clinics and the community at large. This is in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2015 – 2030 ‘to ensure health lives and promote wellbeing for all, at all ages’ (una-gp.org:2018).
Giving back to the Diepkloof community is deeply rooted in the foundation’s beliefs, which is why we host a couple of different outreach programs annually. The Zodwa Khoza Foundation founder annually hosts her birthday celebration with local elders from Diepkloof and Orlando, where we have a braai day, cake and hand out gifts to attendees.
The Foundation also sponsors about 25 young students currently studying at the Maharishi Institution in Johannesburg CBD. The Foundation has also taken upon itself the task of giving different families food parcels and blankets at Christmas every year.
