JB Dondolo, Inc
About J.B. Dondolo, Inc. J.B. Dondolo, Inc. is a nonprofit organization (registered 501c3 in Texas) that provides charitable services to impoverished communities worldwide. The organization works to promote and develop programs and projects that stimulate growth in low-income areas. The organization focuses on humanitarian projects that have been started but not finished due to hardships such as illness, death, lack of funding, and other unforeseen circumstances. The organization is named after the late J.B. Dondolo, who was an orphan, a farmer, and a humanitarian. His values and principles of giving back inspired his children to form the organization in his honor and continue his legacy of caring for those who are less fortunate. J.B. Dondolo’s daughter, Lumbie Mlambo, is the CEO and Founder of the organization. Our Mission Our mission is to promote and develop projects that stimulate growth and improve the lives of those living in low-income, impoverished areas. We aim to do so by focusing on humanitarian projects that provide basic necessities, such as water and healthcare in these communities. To ensure sustainability of projects, we use collaborative approaches with local community members who identify the projects and programs that they need assistance with. We monitor and follow up on the completed projects and sustainable programs. Current Project We are currently working on the Igusi “Hospital Hope” project in Nyamandlovu rural area in Zimbabwe (located between Bulawayo and Victoria Falls). This project was founded by the late J.B. Dondolo when he visited the hospital, which was a clinic at that time. He identified a need for basic necessities in order for the hospital to effectively serve community. Using the little money that he had earned selling crops from his farm, Mr. Dondolo was able to get electricity installed in the hospital. Unfortunately, the project was placed on hold due to his illness. J.B. Dondolo Inc. aims to finish the work that he started. Please see video links below.

Dondolo’s mission begins with working on the critical component first, which is water. Access to clean water is a basic human right. The water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) situation in the Nyamandlovu rural area is characterized by challenges of water quality and availability, despite the presence of resources such as a nearby water aquifer. Community members have complained about the water tasting salty, and failure to have dependable and sustainable water supplies to the local health facility. This project serves as a priority that requires us to act swiftly to restore the water system in order to save lives and improve the quality of living for all members of the community. We value the partnerships and connections we make, and look forward to working with you to accomplish our mission.
