Founder Profile

  • Creseldah Ndlovu is well known as "Bushbuckridge Mother Teresa" she was born from single parented family where her mother was a domestic worker. at the age of 16yrs, circumstances forced her to be a "child headed" family and she became a mother to her siblings and niece. her mother was working in the local game reserves but only comes home after three months.
  • From that humble beginning Creseldah grew responsibility and jungle school work, family and socially. which was very hard but it made her more responsible and poverty made her street wise as she always say she was never raised in a silver spoon.
