South Africa, our most popular location, is the 25th largest country in the world. Visitors are attracted to the country for the lovely vineyards, sandy beaches, stunning mountain ranges, and renowned safaris. Masked behind the country’s beauty and diversity is the prevalence of HIV and AIDS, which is greater than anywhere else worldwide. Our projects in Durban and Johannesburg work to provide care and safety for the vulnerable and affected.
Johannesburg, the largest city in South Africa, also known as the City of Gold is home to many sites and attractions that add to the excitement of working at Nkosi’s Haven. Nkosi’s Haven is a community that provides education and opportunities for growth and sustainability for the children and women affected by HIV/AIDS in their care. Nkosi’s Haven is named after Nkosi Johnson, who was born with HIV and became a national figure in the anti-discrimination of people with HIV/AIDS. He died at the age of 12, but his work continues through the work of Nkosi’s Haven.
“It’s been a humbling experience, where I have helped the charity develop strategies that will enable increased donations. I used my BA(Hons) degree in Business Management to solve problems and support the operations as well as marketing”

“We observed some play therapy which actually happened with one of the kids that I had in day-care which was incredibly interesting and I really enjoyed it. It was great to see that we are working for a cause that was so useful and well known.”
