A few years ago, four couples who had a common interest in charity work were exchanging ideas on how to help the marginalised people in the communities they grew up in. It didn’t take long before the ideas developed into action. It started with collecting second hand clothes from their respective families and giving to the needy. A few months down the line, the couples would contribute whatever amount of money they could afford and buy such small things as sanitary pads for girls, baby clothes for expecting mothers and even foodstuffs for the old and disabled. Driven by ambition to see more marginalised people getting help on a larger scale MAkCAW, was born in February 2014. MAkCAW (PVO number 28/18) was formally registered as a Private Voluntary Organisation in terms of subsection (5) of section 9 of the Private Voluntary Organisations Act [Chapter 17:05]. in January 2019.
Its thrust, philosophy, theology and ideology is philanthropy based. MAkCAW is motivated by humanitarianism with no discrimination against race, religion, and any other differences.
