ABOUT MAMA MIRRIAM TONI

Ncedisizwe Centre

Mama Mirriam Toni started Ncedisizwe Centre in the early 1990’s to provide young boys and girls who’ve been abused, abandoned and in some cases left for dead on the street a home. She is determined to change the narrative of these little lives and teach them the value of a loving, stable home. She has dedicated her life to caring for orphans and vulnerable children, providing them with counselling, meals, and a variety of activities to keep them off the streets, including her own soccer team – the All Stars.

Her compassion toward her community doesn’t stop there. Mama Mirriam also started a catering project with her sister and her centre provides employment to 28 members, as well as opening a hair salon, sewing centre and bakery. She has a passion for sharing all her knowledge with fellow members and is committed to transferring her skills to them so that can improve their circumstances and ultimately become self-sufficient.
