Because only together can we
build a world where all youth are safe, strong & valued
WHO WE ARE
The KETEX Foundation is a non-profit organization (NPO) formed in 2008 by Xolani Hlitana. Our organisation initially started as an act of kindness extended to two young learners. Our founder realized the need for more such acts which lead to a registered, fully-fledged organization which cares for 80 teenagers, 15 HIV positive orphans and their adult carers all housed in a home in Alexandra. With our deep understanding of the social fabric in our country, we have an intentional focus towards education and youth development in townships.
Our mission to is to turn dreams into reality for all who are supported by us.
WHAT WE DO
The Chillaz programme is was created to inspire, motivate and help pupils realise their dreams through mentorship sessions facilitated by volunteers of Ketex. Through this programme, we also facilitate quarterly bursaries to 20 disadvantaged learners.
— Care giving
The KETEX foundation runs an orphanage in Alexandra. This facility is home to 15 orphaned children who receive all their basic needs from the home which include food, clothing, school and accommodation.
We offer face-to-face and anonymous counselling to anyone in need
