ABOUT MAMA DORAH SEMENYA

Shalate Drop-in Centre

When the HIV/AIDS endemic left many children orphaned or in the care of abusive relatives, careless guardians or grandparents too old to properly attend to their needs, Mama Dorah volunteered her heart and home to address society’s ills. She started the Shalate Drop-in Centre in May 2006 and put her Primary Teachers Certificate to work providing children in her care not only with a safe and loving home but also the education that they need to progress in society.

But that was not her only concern the high teen pregnancy rate left young mothers ill-equipped and underfunded, and she set out to educate and assist them in any way she can. Her centre currently provides a haven to around 120 children, and she ensures that all the kids have a healthy meal and regularly attends school. Her goal is to protect children against all forms of abuse, and in her community, she provides hope to the hopeless.
