We  have been running a non-profit organization for disadvantage children in Durban, for 18 years.There are three centres,each one is located in a township,rural area and an informal settlement (shanty town). We host volunteers from around the world so in order to raise money we offer them accommodation and food.

 

Volunteers bring great energy and excitement when they come to our Centres. Every year we look forward to having you stay with us and share your experiences.Your generosity is greatly appreciated and it is a privilege for us to welcome you to our family.
