Aiming to bring life, hope and opportunity to underprivileged communities in South Africa
The Lonely Road Foundation is a South African development charity, aiming to bring life, hope and opportunity to orphaned and vulnerable children in rural and underprivileged communities in South Africa.
In 2006, on a visit to a rural village in Limpopo, our Founding Director, Thabang Skwambane, met a two-year old girl. While sitting in a room discussing the orphaned children in the community, there was a scratching at the door. When the villagers failed to respond, Thabang opened the door to this toddler, carrying her one meal for the day - chicken feet and pap. Both of her parents had died of AIDS-related illnesses and the villagers declared that she needed to learn to fend for herself.
