MIP has made a donation to the Tshepong Centre For the Disabled (Tshepong) which serves the impoverished area of Refilwe, (Cullinan) Tshwane Municipality (METSWEDING DISTRICT), an area classified as a Presidential poverty node, characterised by under development, including a large percentage of the country’s population which incorporates the poorest of the poor (rural and urban poor) as well as being one of twenty prioritised townships in Gauteng. We further donated blankets, carpets and dividers for the classroom in July 2013. A goodie bag is donated to all students and teachers during December.
One of the major contributions we make is to the eDeaf. Deaf people are many times marginalised since they cannot communicate freely and are often regarded as incompetent or not intelligent. MIP has contributed to set up a new training centre where deaf people are trained for specific skills that allows them to be employed.

MIP has contributed to Boys Town in the past.
