Every child has abilities. 
Not all have opportunities. 

Empowering through


Masinyusane creates opportunities for impoverished children and youth to get the best education possible. We invest in high impact education projects that empower the local community to uplift itself.

We are simultaneously creating a generation of leaders now while investing in the long-term future of South Africa's children.
