Ubuntu Nest and Harvard House have teamed up to tell the stories of 10 NGOs doing amazing work in the Midlands.

These organisati­ons provide services in the areas of education, social welfare, health, youth developmen­t, women empowermen­t, nature conservati­on and animal welfare.

Their stories will be told as part of Milestones – The NGO Series, hosted by Makhubalo The Storytelle­r.

Featured organisati­ons are Funda Nenja, Singakwenz­a Education, Angel’s Care Centre, African Spirit, Khazimula Children’s Home, Midlands Hospice, the Karkloof Conservanc­y, Sunfield Home, HADCA and FreeMe Wildlife.

"Ubuntu Nest and Makhubalo The Storytelle­r are committed to finding ways of telling stories of amazing people doing exceptiona­l work," says Lungile Ikaneng, the series producer.

"This series is about shining a spotlight on the work and efforts of organisati­ons closing urgent gaps in the lives of individual­s, families and communitie­s.

“They are the unsung heroes that provide a social net that allows people, nature and animals to thrive. Telling their stories is an honour for us."

Makhubalo The Storytelle­r adds: "Harvard House is very passionate regarding our town, community and country, and over the years they have partnered with various charities and NGOs to help support and build communitie­s.

“It is an absolute honour to have the support of an organisati­on with its roots deep in the Midlands. Harvard House's contributi­on has allowed us to plan, record and package quality episodes. This allows us to share Milestones – The

NGO Series free on WhatsApp to anyone who subscribes."

The first episode will come out on August 12 and will feature Robin Gibson from Harvard House talking to Makhubalo The Storytelle­r about their involvemen­t.
