Nkosi's Haven is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) that has been operating since 1999. This organization was inspired by a little boy, Nkosi, who was diagnosed with AIDS since birth. Nkosi became an advocate for mothers and children affected by this disease, and became well known around the world. His foster mother, Gail Johnson, started Nkosi's Haven to provide shelter for children and mothers affected by AIDS. Today, Nkosi's Haven has two operations sites and have recently purchased a farm to grow organic food to feed the residents and to sell as a source of income.
Mosaic South Africa's vision is one where every orphan in South Africa is loved and cared for, and in order to make that a reality they are currently implementing the first self-sustainable orphan care model in the country. Their model includes providing shelter, education, and employment opportunities to families all within the townships of South Africa. First they find a family and then build them a small house with separate bedrooms, water, plumbing, and electricity, and then provide skill training and employment opportunities to the parents so they may have a sustainable income.
H.E.L.P. Ministries International is currently carrying out the responsibility of feeding 5,000 primary school children and 1,000 unemployed adults on a daily basis. They provide the children with a mug of soup and bread every day so that they may have one less problem to think about and concentrate better in school in order to do well. Around 400 gallons of soup is cooked each day and is given out to 9 primary schools and the surrounding community. The main purpose of the soup kitchen, besides feeding the children and adults, is to teach the leaders that volunteer there how to go about feeding 5,000 children every day so that they may go back to their communities and start a similar soup kitchen.
