Community Projects

The Denis Hurley Centre is a place not only for the poor and marginalised but for all members of the community of inner city Durban. We therefore are constantly looking to offer programmes that will enhance the lives of people in the area, poor and rich, South African and foreign, young and old, black, white and brown.

Some of the programmes running at the moment include:

(isiZulu language speakers especially welcome). For more information contact Brian Mlungwana (email mlungwanab@gmail.com or call 078 440 2942)
