Reitumetse Primary School
was established in 1997 to improve the standard of primary education in the community and to develop and conduct programmes to help under-privileged individuals uplift themselves by excellent education, quality teaching and sporting activities. The pupils are mainly from families affected by HIV, high rates of unemployment and child-headed homes and who do not get government support for lack of birth certificates and undocumented parents from neighbouring countries.
Mission Society Care (MS Care),
headed by Bishop Dr Thabile Mnisi-Msibi, started more than twelve years ago as a shelter for orphans, the elderly, disabled and abused people, and people living with HIV/AIDS, providing care, education and a source of hope for those at the margins of society. MS Care educates underserved communities about the implications of HIV/AIDS and methods of prevention. They provide dedicated in-house care for those in the final weeks of life and afterschool programs for AIDS orphans, also operating as a first response rape crisis center and shelter for abused women.
