Welcome to the esiDulini Community Trust
The esiDulini Community Trust is a registered non-profit organisation reaching out to the communities surrounding the Sabi Sand Nature Reserve. Dulini Private Nature Reserve, is located in a world-renowned wildlife destination.
The luxurious lodges and rich game experience offered to guests from around the Globe are primarily staffed and serviced by people who reside in the neighbouring communities.
We thank you for caring and making a difference to our community! Together we bring positive change to many lives.
"To be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others."
The Dulini Family is passionate about supporting local women and bettering lives. And we extend this invitation to our guests, to join us in our endeavour.
Alarmingly, up to 60% of rural African girls drop out of school because of menstruation; with a lack of access to basic sanitary wear leaving them socially, economically, and politically marginalised.
Project Dignity works to empower pubescent schoolgirls from impoverished rural backgrounds to complete their education, by equipping them with a reliable supply of basic sanitary products. Statistics show that there are over 4500 female learners of pubescent age in the 29 schools of the 14 villages surrounding the Sabi Sand Nature Reserve. We aim to deliver dignity to every pubescent girl in our area by providing ongoing access to washable sanitary towels.
For ZAR360 / $22, you can gift a young woman the dignity to stay in school and unlock her true potential.
*Stats: 4200 girls reached, 23 schools, 11 villages.
The campus currently services approximately 400 school-aged learners per week, and is the foremost adult skills-training centre in the local rural area.
We are extremely proud of the establishment of this digital learning model that offers access to a world-class education for rural students and scholars.
Dumphries Digital Learning Campus
Of 100 children that start school in South Africa, approximately 60 will reach their final year, 37 will graduate, and only 12 will access university. Almost none will be adequately equipped to participate in the fourth industrial revolution.
We are on a mission, in partnership with the Good Work Foundation, to change this.
*Stats: 587 school learners weekly, 68 adult learners daily, 14 community educators.
Hlayisekani Nursing Home
The Hlayisekani Nursing Homes offer residential and frail-care facilities for vulnerable elderly people in the rural villages of Huntington and Kildare, in the surrounding province of Mpumalanga.
The Hlayisekani Team provides daily 24-hour care for up to 120 permanent residents, with caregiver staff and a professional nurse on duty at all times.
Hlayisekani’s mission is to provide the highest possible quality of care and support to its elderly residents, ensuring that each resident is afforded dignity, comfort and security in their golden years.
*Stats: 86 elderly residents, 28 nursing staff.
“Africa is not a country, but it is a continent like none other. It has that which is elegantly vast or awfully little.”

HOW YOU CAN IMPACT LIVES
A visit to the surrounding villages is a remarkable way to see the heart of the work done by the esiDulini Community Trust.
Speak to us about arranging a community tour to experience the culture of our local neighbourhood and gain an understanding of the challenges faced by the people who live in these rural villages.
DULINI IS A PLACE WHERE THE HUMAN SPIRIT RECONNECTS TO NATURE WHILE CELEBRATING THE QUINTESSENTIAL SPIRIT OF THE AFRICAN SAFARI.
Demographically, these communities rank amongst some of the most impoverished in our country. We believe we have a responsibility to extend our hand to our neighbours who live rural lifestyles far from the reach of government spending and service provision.
We aim to make a meaningful difference through educational outreach that realises individual potential and community growth.
