Over the past decade, Nkosi’s Haven has strived to become the prototype for providing holistic care for women and children affected by HIV/AIDS in South Africa.  During this time we have been able to increase our size, reach, and occupancy exponentially and this continues to be our mission as we move forward and continue to expand our current sites, and develop new ones.

What few people realize, however, is that such expansion would not be possible without the generous support of our volunteers, both local and international, who work tirelessly to ensure that Nkosi’s Haven and Village continue to be positive and energetic environments for our resident moms and kids.  Whether involved with programming, workshops, administration, or through assisting us with providing on-site medical support, it is truly our volunteers who deserve recognition for the success of our organization to date.

As a result, we are always looking for new volunteers to bring their skills and their passion to Nkosi’s Haven.  If you are interested in helping us continue to care for and empower a growing number of women and children, please consider coming on board as a volunteer.

Local volunteers from South Africa, please contact our Matron Cynthia Ndlovu at matron1@nkosishaven.org for more information.

International volunteers, please contact Lynn Sewell at volunteer@nkosishaven.org for an application form. This can be emailed back once completed.
