Ingane Yami 2016The Lion Match Company supports Ingane Yami. This is a non-profit organisation, established in response to the growing AIDS crisis in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The organisation works with orphaned and abandoned children as well as children trapped in vulnerable circumstances, and raises them in a loving family environment in order to restore lives. Their ultimate goal is to help these children realise their full potential and become a future generation of young leaders.
|A water problem in the community was resulting in an insufficient water supply, which was crippling the daily operation of the village. Lion Safety Matches has donated two boreholes to Ingane Yami in order to secure a reliable water resource.
|In South Africa, there are over 7 million children who have never owned or worn a pair of new school shoes. These children have become accustomed to walking barefoot through our rough African terrain. At its core Soul 2 Sole is simply about providing a pair of school shoes to as many of these underprivileged children as possible. We strongly believe that this small and simple gesture can have a ripple effect, bringing hope, pride and dignity to our future leaders. Soul 2 Sole works to connect individuals and groups with underprivileged schools to provide footwear, funds or other resources needed by the school and it’s community.
|The Lion Match Company partnered with Blue Sky Society Trust to donate a pair of Toughees school shoes and tin of Lion Quality Shoe Polish to each of the 260 pupils at the Matabetulu Primary School in iNanda.
