HIV/AIDS and poverty have resulted in many children being abandoned and orphaned. Recent statistics reveal that in South Africa alone there are over 5 million orphaned children. It is against this background that Lungisisa Indlela Village (LIV) began in 2010 to help deal with this crisis and leave a legacy for future generations.
LIV is partnering with Government, Business and the Church groups to provide urgently needed holistic residential care on a large scale for the thousands of vulnerable and parentless children, with the core vision to Rescue a child, Restore a life, Raise a leader and Release a star.
LIV place these children into family environments where they receive unconditional love, spiritual discipleship, care and nurturing and where all their physical needs are met. LIV (www.liv-village.com) is a registered NPO and section 21 company with a ddboard of Directors for governance, transparency and credibility.
Khulisani has recently partnered with LIV Village to create jobs and provide some of our ex-I Can! learners with skills development opportunities, training and employment. With sponsorship from companies such as SGRP Meridian we are able to train, place, manage and pay the salaries of ex I Can! learners (with intellectual disabilities) to work at LIV Village.
Above are learners Precious Ralarala and Samkelisiswe Ngcobo who are sponsored by SGRP Meridian.
