A Short History...

CHoiCe Trust, a health-based NGO serving the rural population of the Mopani District, was established in 1997 in the rural areas around Tzaneen, Limpopo Province. A group of committed nurses and health practitioners formed under the leadership of Fiona Macdonald- our founding trustee- to provide essential health training and interventions to farm workers. It soon became apparent that working with farm workers was not enough, as the behaviour of the farm workers was largely influenced by their families and neighbours from the rural villages. CHoiCe soon made the decision to move into the villages and provide education and skill development around home-based care amongst the vulnerable community members. CHoiCe grew over the years and diversified its’ programmes through the empowerment of home-based caregivers. Through it all, CHoiCe has remained committed to its core vision for the rural community.
