TESTIMONIALS

“My grandmother attends one of the senior clubs in Khayelitsha at H section. I must congratulate Ikamva Labantu, you guys do an exceptional job. My gogo is as youthful as ever – fit and healthy. I live in Durban and whenever she visits she looks stronger and healthier. Great work, may God bless you.”

“Ikamva Labantu’s Persona Doll Training has helped me in a lot of things… My teacher also learnt a lot from the Practitioner’s Training Programme which made it easy for her to be accepted at False Bay College where she’s currently advancing her ECD knowledge. Her work ethic has also improved and she’s visibly equipped with knowledge. Both the teacher and children have changed for the better and communication has improved. We have learnt to support each child according to their individual needs and backgrounds. And our hygiene has improved tremendously.”

“I come to Rainbow because I like being educated and playing games. I also got my school uniform and glasses when my eyesight started deteriorating. I keep coming because I need assistance with homework and I’m part of the dance group.”
