Our vision is to alleviate the plight of mission is to try to alleviate the plight of such children, by providing nurturing care and building self-confidence so that they can be reintegrated into the wider community, free from stigmatisation. To break the cycle of abandonment, abuse and neglect by empowering them to become healthy, happy and well-adjusted adults. A child in need is our child indeed and cared for in the spirit of Love, Hope and Peace.
“I would like to say Thank You for allowing my daughter and her friend to have the opportunity to spend the time with the beautiful people at Heavens Nest, especially the children. She couldn’t stop talking about them last night and she became so attached to them, that she would like to know if we are able to volunteer if possible, maybe on a Saturday. We would really appreciate it, my dad was an orphan and these kids have a special place in my heart.” – Mrs Swarts
