About Masiphumelele Creative Hub

Masiphumelele Creative Hub (MCH) is a South African non-profit organisation (191-408 NPO) that was founded in 2017 by Yandiswa Mazwana with the mission to provide a safe, supportive and educational environment where community members can use the power of creativity and art to overcome their daily challenges.

In March 2020, when the national lockdown started in South Africa, MCH set up a feeding scheme for young children up to grade 5. The organisation ran 7 feeding stations spread across Masiphumelele and provided approximately 1,100 meals per day.

MCH has made food security the cornerstone of their work. Through a focus on growing and supplying healthy food, sport, art and after-school care classes, we encourage the participation of Masiphumelele youth in preserving and nourishing their own resources.
