Location and Setting


Emasithandane is located in the township of Nyanga, which means “moon” in the native language Xhosa. Nyanga is located 26 km outside of Cape Town. It is easy to reach by using the N2 highway and is located close to the Cape Town International Airport. We are opposite the Nyanga Community Health Centre/Clinic.

Nyanga is one of the oldest townships in Cape Town. The need is great in Nyanga due to its poverty, caused in part by the unemployment rate of about 70%.  Nyanga also has a large number of residents infected and affected with HIV and AIDS. Due to this problem Nyanga is home to a number of orphans and single parent families who need help providing for their children. Emasithandane works to intervene in these situations and make sure that the children in the community are well looked after.

The home comprises three small bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, office area and tv room- together providing accomodation for almost 30 children.
