The Sultan Bahu Centre began its life of service with a soup kitchen in marginalized communities such as Noordgesig, Poortjie, Ennerdale and Eldorado Park in 1979 and has since grown to be one of the largest NGO’s in Johannesburg, with humanitarian work now spread countrywide and has evolved to become a multi faceted community base organization with its prime aim being that of the social and economic upliftment of the diverse divers communities it serves. As a community based organisation, we serve the community regardless of colour, race and creed. To this end the organization has established the Sultan Bahu Centre situated on the corner of 4th and George Streets, Mayfair, Johannesburg, in order to carry out its humanitarian aims and objectives.
In addition, we have branches in various towns in the country. This includes:
• Johannesburg • Lenasia • Pretoria
• Cape Town • Potchestroom • Durban
Of the many Functions the centre carries out are, but not limited to:
• Caring for orphans;
• Caring for the neglected mothers;
• Financial assistance to the needy;
• Caring for the sickly which includes providing free dialysis; and
• Drug Rehabilitation, etc
At the Sultan Bahu Centre, we firmly believe in our motto:
“Where you come to Learn, Leave to Serve”
Funding of our organisation
In order to continue our work, we need to ensure that we have sufficient funding in place. As a non-profit organisation this is always a challenge. As such, we have to develop innovative methods of raising funds for our activities.
