There are millions of orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa, mostly due to HIV/AIDS. Lungisisa Indela Village (LIV) is a Christian organisation that focuses on a solution to aid the crisis. It places affected children into a family environment with a trained foster mother to love them, a school to educate them, and where all their needs are met.

If these children are equipped with essential moral values and life skills, they will grow up to be a generation that will influence positive change within South Africa, Africa and the world.

The LIV model provides long-term cluster foster care, where the children will have a sense of belonging in a homely environment, modelling an African village lifestyle. The houses are built in clusters, each with 8 homes surrounding a communal play area. Each home has a fully trained House Mother, who may bring two biological children, and will be given up to six children through the Department of Social Welfare.
