Khayelihle Children’s Village
Mission Statement: Khayelihle Children’s Village (KCV) is a beautiful home to about 50 orphaned and vulnerable children. KCV was established in 1994 when over 22.5 million Africans were living with HIV/AIDS. While the AIDS epidemic has waned, the economic situation in Zimbabwe still means that parents feel compelled to abandon their children. KCV now operates on a reconnection model, seeking out the extended family of the children that come to them and reuniting them where it is safe and supportive for the children. Living in a family is the best thing for the child. The village is warm and welcoming place, organized into family units, which becomes their family in the meantime.
