Nolubabalo Mcinga the NTU News publisher is a global business pioneer and a philanthropist who gives of her time, talent and drive to make a positive change happen for humanity regardless of wealth or status. She is also the founder and managing executive of the Be Able Foundation, a socially conscious non-profit organisation which focusses on child care, wellness, spiritual upliftment and offers skills development training set to open its doors in November.

Nolubabalo also runs an accommodation and training centre located in the tranquil and serene Hamburg Village in South Africa. The Emthonjeni Resort offers a conference centre, accommodation and a camping site. Mcinga is also involved in the non-governmental organisation, Deafinately Global, in the capacity as a deaf Ambassador and board member.

Mcinga was born and bred in Graaf-Reinet business woman and author of her self-titled book “The Sum of Life.” She can be seen on social media sharing some aspects about her book. Fondly known by her peers as Babsi and she has inherited her heart of gold from her mother.

“My Mother assisted at an NGO called Vuyani Safe Haven where they took care of homeless children and educated them,” said Mcinga.

“Growing up I watched my Mother prioritizing taking care of the children from Vuyani Safe Haven more than she took care of her biological children, and I believe that is the reason why I have such a big heart and who I am today”, added Mcinga.

The foundation is getting help from Dr Loretta Ferrucci from Khula Natural Health Centre who will open a clinic for the secret safe house. “The aim of opening the clinic is to lessen the burden of the public care because women and children in the rural areas have to travel for medical help and other clinics are poorly staffed”, said Dr Loretta Ferrucci from the Khula Health Centre in East London.

The initiative started in Khula Village in KwaZulu-Natal where the clinic now helped more than 12 000 people. “Our aim is to provide the community to primary Homeopathic health care. This will improve people’s lives because homeopathic medication focuses on nutrition, lifestyle and social factors and I believe healthier the people, the healthier the community can become”, added Ferrucci.

Mcinga started the Be Able Foundation however she has run a soup kitchen for homeless boys in Gonubie, East London every Friday and Sunday. She selflessly does this at her own expense and Mcinga is helped by some of her close friends and continues to make life easier for the disadvantaged.

“I fed homeless boys in Kempton Park Johannesburg since 2013 and now I feed homeless boys in Gonubie every Friday and Sundays”, said Mcinga.

1.Montessori inspiring kids Centre -It educates kids and families about how to live healthy and happy lives.

2. Be Able Light house shelter – Safe home for women and children.

3. Be Able soup kitchen – Serves hot meals to the homeless.

4.Be able treatment house – This division helps people deal with their addictions.
