Who We Are

Ethembeni was established by the Howick Community Church in November 2000 as a social outreach programme in the township of Mpophomeni, about 12kms outside the town Howick in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. Today, this outreach has developed into an independent, registered non-profit organisation.
The Ethembeni tribe is diverse and passionate. We have over 100 missionaries, staff, consultants, volunteers who daily announce that Jesus can be trusted. We are a messy family.
