Ndlovu’s Bloempoort Child Care Campus was opened on the 15th October 2016 with joyful anticipation of a new era in Comprehensive Child Care in the Bloempoort target area. 
Dignitaries from far and wide attended. Local dignitaries voiced their co-operation and enthusiasm to make the project work, and to safeguard it at all costs to ensure the safety and care of their children. 
Representatives of the donors and many other stakeholders from abroad also attended. The project's uniqueness as an integrated Child Care Program and Dr Tempelman’s contribution as an exceptional visionary and fundraiser were mentioned again and again. 
There were many proud moments for the Ndlovu Staff, donors and stakeholders and there was also fun and sweet memories to be made when the first pupils of the new Joseph Mafiri Pre-School sang their joy to the crowd. 
The program was packed; traditional dancing, the Ndlovu Youth Choir performing at their best, ribbons were cut to inaugurate the buildings and trees were planted by the donors to symbolize the growth of children in the years to come. To put the cherry on top, each and every member of the attendees were served an excellent and abundant meal of mealie pap, nyama and juice.
Our sincere thanks to each and every person who took the time to celebrate with us on this fantastic day….

The building of the new Ndlovu Research Facility is rapidly progressing, with action in full swing to finish in time for new studies to be conducted there. The Ndlovu Cohort Study and possibly two more studies around vaccines for HIV and TB will be conducted there. The facility is custom designed to be the ultimate dream environment for any researcher.
The building is co-funded by Cees and Ingeborg van de Burg, the Sapinda Rainbow Foundation and by Ndlovu Care Group’s own capital.
Ndlovu Care Group’s Research Programs have a well-earned reputation for excellence. There is, however, a need for investors who can see the potential of a rural research centre in Elandsdoorn, Limpopo


The Hugo Tempelman Stiftung is a not for profit foundation in Germany under the management of Vivi Eickelberg.  This German Foundation endeavors to source funding for Ndlovu Care Group projects in Germany and South Africa. 
The Hugo Tempelman Stiftung is presently in South Africa and on site at Ndlovu with an extensive filmcrew to capture the spirit of Ndlovu Care Group on film.  It is no easy task to tell the Ndlovu Story to people who live in completely different circumstances to that of rural South African township life.  To make a film to capture the essence of Ndlovu needs an exceptional story teller with a keen understanding and empathy for the Ndlovu cause. 
To this end, the Hugo Tempelman Stiftung has been fortunate enough to convince Clemens Schick to narrate the documentary.  Clemens Schick is a high profile German actor with many popular movies under his belt.  He is also a committee member and activist for the Human Rights Watch, which makes him an excellent candidate for this purpose.  Clemens is an true Ambassador of the Hugo Tempelman Stiftung and is much engaged and touched by the work done. The documentary is funded by the Daimler Benz in Germany, who have great respect for the work Ndlovu Care Group does.
The end product of a week of filming with Clemens Schick and the crew will be a four minute documentary for the Energetix Launch in August in Berlin and a 25 minute TV documentary which will be broadcasted later in the year on German Television.

Ndlovu Care Group was founded in 1994 as a medical facility.  Ndlovu Care Group is registered as Ndlovu Medical Trust which was established in 1999.  Ndlovu Medical Trust is a registered NGO (registered in 2002) and Public Benefit Organisation.

Our vision is to provide opportunities and hope with innovative Healthcare, Childcare and Community Development developed by means of comprehensive Research.

The mission of Ndlovu Care Group is to advance the rural communities that we are active in with

through a uniquely researched and evidence based developed model that is aligned with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and the National Strategic Plan for South Africa (NSP).

Ndlovu Care Group has its head offices in Groblersdal and is operational in two sites: the first is 30km from Groblersdal in Elandsdoorn in the Moutse Valley, serving a community of 100 000 people.  The second is Bhubezi in the Bushbuckridge catchment area, Mpumalanga, serving a community of around 120 000 people. 

All, but the professional staff, are recruited from the communities and receive in-service training.

Comprehensive Child Care Programs include 4 Nutritional Units, 3 Pre-Schools, Child care courses for child care takers, care of children living in child headed households.  Ndlovu has built 21 houses for children living in child headed households and has upgraded numerous homes for such children.  We encourage youth and children to attend after-school classes to overcome the barriers that matric failure set at an after-school centre, the Chill Hub. The Chill Hub has classrooms, a library, TV rooms, a social worker, life-skills facilitators, a career advisor and the Ndlovu IT Training Centre with internet café.
In an attempt to develop and nurture talent amongst the youth and children, Ndlovu Care Group established the Ndlovu Youth Choir.  The Choir has paved the way to successes for all its members through discipline, endurance and the development of self-esteem. The Choir has a track record of no school drop-outs and a minimal amount of teen-age pregnancies contributing towards their scholastic achievements: they are role models for the youth in our area. The Ndlovu Youth Choir's popularity is such, that they have been invited to perform not only in prestigious venues in South Africa, but also abroad. 

The Ndlovu Community Health Care programs offer integrated PHC/TB/HIV/AIDS, Maternal and Reproductive Health and Palliative Care.  Additional services offered include cervical screening, PMTCT, on-site labs, X-Ray facilities and pharmacies and preventative counseling.  An Audiology Program was launched in 2014 and serves the Moutse Community, with new-born hearing screening, school screenings, diagnostic tests and ototoxicity screening.  Outreach services widen the spectrum and footprint of Ndlovu to farms and other clinics.

As part of the Community Development Programs in an underserved community, Ndlovu has a waste collection and disposal service with six dumping sites from which around 600kg of waste is removed three times per week.  Additionally, Ndlovu has erected 43 boreholes strategically positioned, with clean running water. Disabled friendly sports facilities, including a gym are open to the public.  A amphitheater, the Miracle Theatre is open to the public, and have hosted international performing artists and offers multiple SASSA services to the community. Ndlovu additionally offers dental services to the community’s learners, including screenings, dental cleanings and minor treatments with a roving dental truck.

All programs planned at Ndlovu are evidence based and with years of research, Ndlovu has established itself as the ideal Research Programs partner. The Ndlovu Research Consortium is a collaboration between Ndlovu Care Group, Utrecht University (NL), and the University of Witwatersrand (RSA) to research the medical and social aspects of HIV and treatment outcomes in a rural setting such as Elandsdoorn, Moutse. 
The Ndlovu Research Consortium has four major disciplines: 1. program evaluation, 2. academic research in all its aspects, 3.product development, 4.contribution towards policy development and guideline improvement, nationally and internationally.
