Ingane Yami Children’s Village

Ingane Yami is an isiZulu word meaning “My Child”.

Ingane Yami Children’s Village is not an orphanage in the traditional sense. Rather, it is a permanent, loving home for orphaned and vulnerable children.

The Village is located just outside of Durban, in the Shongweni Valley. Unlike a traditional orphanage, the Village consists of individuals homes. Each home is home to six children and a carefully selected foster mother. Our team includes social workers, an on-site Village Pastor, qualified teachers and a committed support team. Everyone works together to ensure each child’s emotional, educational, physical and spiritual needs are met.

Our child sponsorship program is an amazing opportunity for individuals, families or corporate teams to connect with a specific child.

By simply committing to an on-going monthly donation, you become a part of rewriting a child’s story. Your donation goes directly towards your sponsor child’s holistic needs. In return, you will receive feedback on their progress and be given opportunities to meet and connect with them.
