Our Purpose

We exist for one reason: to provide a loving residential environment that serves the emotional, physical, and developmental needs of orphaned, abandoned and disadvantaged children in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.

Our Mission

Raise $850,000 annually to fully support our children, from pre-school to adulthood. No one is the United States is being paid – 100% of our funds raised go to the support of the kids and efforts to raise more funds.

Our Hope
