Foundation for the Smart Nation

Foundation for the Smart Nation is a 100% black-female owned organization. It was established in 2017 by three friends Sibongile, Delinah and Sisanda who are passionate about community development.

The organisation was created for the betterment of children living in disadvantaged areas in an effort to improve their lives. The main focus is on educational support for children facing challenges of lack of electricity at home; walking long distances to school in the dark, being exposed to rainy conditions; facing risks of being knocked over by vehicles while walking in the dark.
