St Mungo’s Diepsloot Community Action mandate is to uplift and empower the community through Education, Vocational Training, and Enterprise Development (SMMEs and Co-operatives), help the community to develop life skills and income, address hunger and extreme poverty and address the ravages of HIV/AIDS, drugs and alcohol, crime and violence.

The AVI Community Trust has partnered with St Mungo’s over the years on projects that allows disadvantaged youths over the age of 18 years who have not achieved their matric to achieve a matric equivalent education and skills. In addition this enables them to become employable or self-employed through the Adult Basic Education and Training, carpentry and sewing programs. A new project commenced in January 2017 with the opening of an Early Childhood Development Centre (ECD) – Khulani (meaning ‘grow’), which has two classes, Grade 00 (aged 4-5 years old) and Grade 000 (aged 3- 4 years old).
