 “There is a lovely road that runs from Ixopo into the hills. These hills are grass-covered and rolling, and they are lovely beyond any singing of it. The road climbs seven miles into them, ...; and from there, if there is no mist, you look down on one of the fairest valleys of Africa.”
opening lines of Cry the Beloved Country1948 by Alan Paton
But this bucolic valley in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands (South Africa), home to 23 000 people, belies the hardship faced by the Gogos (Grannies) and women living here (86% of the adult population are women).  Poverty, sickness and limited opportunities make for a difficult life.  Having to raise your children’s children (with mothers deceased from AIDS or seeking work in the cities) on an indigent budget requires a level of resilience few outside of such circumstances can imagine.
It is here that Woza Moya has been labouring for 17 years to improve health, ensure the wellbeing of children, and facilitate sustainable livelihoods – and the results are showing.
Woza Moya (UK) was established by British supporters who have experienced the fabulous  Ofafa Valley people, to champion the cause in the UK. 

Woza Moya is a community-based NGO located in the Ofafa Valley of rural KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

Our Vision is that  all people in the Ofafa Valley Community live productive and healthy lives, in a safe and clean environment, with good access to services and social justice.

Our Mission is to facilitate the sustainable empowerment of the community to fulful the vision through community health services, capacity building, education, civic participation, engagement with service providers and other strategic partnerships.
