Nkosi’s Haven, named after the young AIDS activist who passed away on 1st June 2000, is a long term residential care centre for the destitute HIV+ mom, her children and AIDS orphans (they children may or may not be infected). Living in a non-prejudicial, non-judgemental, accepting environment, where building the capacity of both resident moms and children is concentrated on. One of our primary objectives is to ensure our children receive the best education affordable and for those who have the academic ability ensure they attend tertiary facilities, at our expense.
