Here are three things that make us different.

Our Family

Family style living

Six children are placed in each house, where they are nurtured, empowered and supported into adulthood – ensuring the best possible start for a new beginning.


Sustainable farming

Our vegetable gardens and poultry projects provide fresh produce and an alternative income source.


Early childhood development

Small class sizes and a wide variety of subjects provide exposure and specialised attention to each child.
