Who we are

We are a nonprofit organization devoted to helping improve the livelihood of the children within the Khayelitsha community. These children have suffered through abuse, neglect, rape, and extreme poverty. Many of our children come from child headed families or do not have proper living conditions. It is imperative that we help develop the lives of these children so they have the opportunity to be successful and live fully to their potential.
