A partner in the growth of hope, education, and empowerment.




We collaborate with independent, community-centered, non-profits focusing on underprivileged, at-risk youth and young adults.

SMC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides an integrated partnership in education, wellness, and development with our partnering projects located in Mthatha, Eastern Cape, and South Africa.

The projects we support are grounded in years of relationship and the sharing of a common vision: A partner in the growth of hope, education, and empowerment.

Through this cooperation, SMC is able to effectively support key projects and initiatives identified by our partners that are crucial to the continued success of their programs.

Sister Mary’s Children
Partnering Projects

Sister Mary’s Children currently partners to support three projects in Mthatha, Eastern Cape South Africa. As a former homeland under the Apartheid government’s policies of racial segregation and discrimination, this area has faced decades of systematic underdevelopment. This has been particularly devastating in education, healthcare, social development, and basic infrastructure.

The three partnering projects function as not-for-profit, community-based organizations that provide vital services to the local community. By partnering with these already established projects, Sister Mary’s Children is in the unique position to support these groups that have been providing positive change on the ground and in the community for decades.
