HISTORY

Yabonga was founded in 1998 by Ursel Barnes and Ulpha Robertson. The initial project supported women running creches in their backyards. Yabonga introduced an educational programme to better prepare these children for formal schooling.

By 2001 we were introduced to the plight of pregnant women testing positive with HIV. In 2004 the first of twelve Yabonga HIV Support Centres was opened on the premises of local community clinics. In 2006 the programme for Orphans and Vulnerable Children was launched with 35 children. This number has grown to 1200 in 2021.
