Mhani Gingi – when translated into English – stands for a caring, industrious woman who is always looking for lasting solutions to social problems. Mhani Gingi is a non-profit organization that strives to provide innovative business solutions which are sustainable and profitable, and contribute towards alleviating poverty in South Africa.

Mhani Gingi uses the Power of the Collective to maximize networking, and tailor-made integrated skills development training according to the collective strengths and skills of the members. The main focus is currently on the province of the Western Cape, specialising in the townships surrounding Cape Town.

Lillian Masebenza, Founding Director of Mhani Gingi, and staff proudly display a Ladles of Love apron. Twice-weekly supplies as well as new kitchen equipment from Ladles of Love have boosted the efforts of Mhani Gingi’s three Soup Stations, situated in Mannenberg/Athlone, Uitsig Community and Retreat, which are providing nutritious meals to about 1 200 individuals in our communities per week.
