Why invest or donate to Nkosi’s Haven?

    • We are led by Gail Johnson and her team of passionate carers and HIV/AIDS activists.  Gail has worked tirelessly and selflessly for several decades in raising awareness and promoting the cause of those affected by HIV/AIDS.  She has emerged as one of South Africa’s and indeed the world’s pre-eminent advocates and thought leaders on the issue and has received many local and international awards and accolades for her work.  Gail manages the Haven on a full time basis and has dedicated her life to its success.
    • We have developed an incredible infrastructure at the Village in Alan Manor which apart from accommodation has a fully equipped medical facility, day care centre for babies, therapy centre for counselling, a bakery and fully industrial kitchen facility.


    • We keep administrative costs as low as possible so that the vast majority of income can be applied to beneficial causes.


    • We have implemented strong governance structures, with an independent board of trustees, KPMG as our auditors and Standard Bank as our Social Trading Bankers.


  • To keep the dream alive that we can one by one contribute to eradication of the stigma, ignorance and suffering of people affected by HIV/AIDS.

How can you help?

There are a number of ways that you can help us achieve our targets for this campaign:

    • Make a cash donation using either the bank account details below or make a donation via the BackaBuddy website.  Please send me a confirmation email on davewoollam@gmail.com so that I can reconcile deposits being received and arrange for section 18A certificates to be issued (donations to Nkosi’s Haven are fully deductible against your tax return)


    • Send this email to your friends and family and influence them to make a donation.


    • Make contact with your company’s CSI department or foundation and promote Nkosi’s Haven as a potential beneficiary of their programmes.  Gail and I would be available any time to meet with the representatives of your company and also to arrange a site visit should they wish.


As a demonstration of my personal commitment and passion for the Nkosi’s Haven, I have pledged to match the first R500 000 of donations received under this campaign with an equivalent personal donation from myself.
