Nkosi`s Haven Vukani
When the Soweto Gospel Choir performs overseas the Choir raises funds through collection at each performance. Nkosi’s Haven receives 50% of this funding while the other 50% is transferred into a separate account, Nkosi’s Haven Vukani (which literally means ‘Outreach’). These funds are used to support carefully selected organizations operating in the townships that care for children orphaned by AIDS.
To select these organizations, the staff and directors of Nkosi’s Haven carefully researched which organizations are in need of assistance and can make the greatest impact with limited funds.
To date, over 9,000 children have been fed through registered organizations being supported by Vukani. Children’s school fees have been paid, orphans school uniforms have been purchased. Appliances, to ease the load of women running soup kitchens to ensure that children receive at least two nutritional meals a day, have been purchased. Security, electrical installations, plumbing, wheel chairs and equipping a ‘homework’ converted container, have all been bought by the choir. Plus, dignity given to children who have passed away through AIDS related illnesses by having their funerals paid for.
The Choir, who received the ultimate recognition by winning three Grammy Awards, deserve the ultimate humanitarian recognition by caring and giving to the children of South Africa.
