  • Organisation


    The Dewdrop Foundation (DDF) is a non-profit organisation established in 2002, with the goal to improve the livelihoods of vulnerable groups in society, especially in rural communities, by developing their capacity to fight for their rights; and engage in enterprises that guarantee them sustainable livelihoods.

    Their primary focus is to develop and implement customised sustainable life-long learnership programmes for effective capacity building at grassroots levels, creating job opportunities, and empowering women and youth to become independent entrepreneurs. These objectives have been achieved over the years through community development and skills acquisition programmes targeted at domestic servants, teachers, community leaders, women organisations, healthcare service providers and other hospitality service providers. DDF also mitigates the ills of domestic child servitude (aka modern day slavery) and internal child trafficking through advocacy for the victimised.
