1€ = 1 PLANT

Your donation will contribute in buying plants, the production of soil and compost. KeNako asbl. already financed the formation of 10 volontary gardeners who have planted the first seeds in 2022. To be able to continue this sustainable project we need your support.


An ambitious project to individually help the 40 orphans of Fikelela Center. For more than 10 years KeNako asbl. supports the Fikelela Children's Center with a global annual donation which is used to increase the nutritional budget of the center.

By sponsoring a child individually you will contribute considerably to improve the child's quality of life. Your donation will be used to cover his school fees, his medical and nutritional expenses as well as all his leisure activities. All of course while maintining the child's complete anonymity.

KeNAKO … Now is the right time.

The soccer World Cup 2010 is over and South Africa has returned to its daily challenges. A destroyed social fabric leftover from a colonial past leaves the children of the townships vulnerable and exposed to the ills of society. Can a privileged society draw on its humanity and develop an active interaction with the previously disadvantaged population of South Africa’s townships?

Can we learn to share in projects in close cooperation with the local population? Here are some questions a group of soccer fans asked themselves : they were triggered by their meeting with locals of various background during the few weeks spend in Cape Town on the occasion of the World Cup.

In has thus been possible to better appreciate the particular needs of the youth in the townships particularly when it comes to nutrition, sport, culture, and basic equipment.

We decided to establish KeNako, a non-profit association to fill the gaps for the youth in these districts.

"Ke Nako" means "time has come" in three of the South African indigenous languages : Sesotho, Setswana and Sepedi.


We are people from various social backgrounds who were deeply moved by the spirit of the South African people. We have decided to act by helping the disadvantaged children of the townships of Cape Town.
KeNako is a non-profit organization registered under Luxembourgish law since November 4th 2010. Registration number : R.C.S. Luxembourg F8522. Our articles of association are available in French in the following PDF document. KeNako's head office is situated in
L-1845 Luxembourg 27, Bd. G-D. Joséphine Charlotte.

We will organize fundraising events, collect donations in our respective countries to help diverse projects in and around the townships of Cape Town.
For this purpose we have built partnership with local NGO’s and other organizations. Several board members live and work in Cape Town and will ensure the follow-up of the different projects.
