Love to Langa does incredible work in the townships surrounding Cape Town. We are 100% volunteer driven, meaning all donations go directly to the projects and people in the communities where we work. Our priority is helping bring new opportunities to children in the form of scholarships, extra-curricular activities and field trips. Amy, the founder has a heart of gold and has devoted the last 4 years to fostering relationships with the teachers and children at the schools we partner with. Kissmea Adams, Love to Langa's driving force on the ground, has been working in the non-profit/early childhood development field for years and her passion for her work is unparalleled. Our work is successful largely as a result of her devotion and hard work. If you are looking for an organization to donate too or volunteer with I highly recommend Love to Langa. You won't be sorry!
