About us

The Friends of Mponegele Ke Itirele (FOMKI) was set up to provide financial assistance in support of the work of the South African Mponegele Ke Itirele (MKI) project, a registered non-profit organisation working with orphans and other vulnerable children in the Mankweng area of Limpopo Province, South Africa.

We work closely with committee members in the South African project to support their work in the Mankweng area and strengthen the impact on their community.
