The faces you will meet at Founders Lodge, the smiles that welcome you, and warm hearts that serve you are from Paterson, a small community near to Founders Lodge. Further to providing employment; we strive to make a difference in the lives of the children in Paterson. We recognize that education is an important facet of the growth and ultimate success of the world’s youth, and thus the future, so, together with Mantis' education division, World Wide Experience, we support the Isipho Charity Trust.
Isipho Charity Trust leads the community of Paterson and the Eastern Cape in their fight against HIV/AIDS and the negative socio-economic effects of the disease.
Using prevention, education, care, and support programs, the Isipho Charity Trust unites, involves, and engages Paterson and communities across the Eastern Cape in order to lead the mobilization, organization, and empowerment of all community members who are infected or affected by HIV/AIDS.
We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travellers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for the Isipho Charity Trust, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.
