THE STORY:

We are a cultural club based in South Africa and registered in Zimbabwe. We work with a number of up coming artists, poets, writers and all cultural organizations from Zimbabwe. We interact with people from all walks of life in Zimbabwe based in South Africa and Johannesburg in particular. We learn with regret that our culture or our customs are unknown to children born and raised in this foreign land. It is unfortunate for these children who are exposed to the daily vice that they have no body caring enough to teach them our being, where we come from and where we are heading for. We are a unique nation whose culture is of respect and values that precede any nation in the Southern Region. We come from a poor country to work in South Africa and give very little attention to our Children. We value our culture and like to go out to schools introduce cultural programs in all these schools in order to reach out to our children. We have volunteers in form of historians, Musicians, drama groups. Together we have formed Ibutho Lenqama to spearhead this calling to preserve our culture and heritage. This is our main aim. A nation must be proud of its culture and without culture a nation is just as good as dead. Non existent. We came for work in South Africa. We also brought our children with us and some are being born here. We have little time for our children. Our kids are left at Creche or preschool centers at the the early age of three months . This automatically exposes the child to all sources of neglect. Parents have no choice but to work and earn the means of living but ignoring the child basic requirements. Mother or parental care where the child bonds well with the parent and learn the cultural and customary ways of living. Ibutho Lenqama as a non profit organization made up of Zimbabweans working in South Africa need your assistance. You can reach us on ibutholenqama@gmail.com Our organization was founded in 2013 and has since Registered fully in Zimbabwe. We have been engaged in various out reach programs teaching and concertizing our fellow Zimbabweans on the importance of our culture. We are non political but commemorate Mzilikazi Day amongst other historical and heritage events. This is part of our culture.
