Launch of the Nkosi’s Haven Art Gallery
We are very excited to announce the launch of the Nkosi’s Haven Art gallery. The gallery was commissioned by Nkosi’s Haven to give exposure to artists via our website to the rest of the world. The Nkosi’s Haven website has due to Nkosi Johnson’s international appeal built up a following across the world. This creates a platform for other parties that are willing to work with us to be exposed to this following of loyal supporters of Nkosi’s Haven.

The multicolored door to the metal shipping container creaks open to reveal two South African women pulling honey-colored loaves from a shiny oven. Outside the newly painted doors, three children munch on fresh bread in the hot, dusty courtyard of Nkosi’s Haven. I stand aside and watch, dressed in my baker’s pants and chef’s coat, while a group of neatly dressed children begin to gather around their mothers and other community women who have assembled to witness the fledgling beginnings of what I cautiously hope will be the gateway to their health, healing and livelihood: The South African Whole Grain Bread Project.
