To serve, educate and provide for the desperate and deserted orphans and HIV infected widows with children through individualised, family-centred, community-focused care. We strive for every orphan to have a humane chance in life.

We are based in a rural area near Empangeni, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Our program is unique in the sense that we do not set up orphanages; our aim is to keep the children within their extended families and assist with home-based care.

We currently have a team that works within the community, ensuring that all the basic needs for our children are met promptly and with sensitivity.
