Story

In January, I'll be heading out to Durban in South Africa where I'll be spending six months volunteering at LIV Village where holistic residential care is provided for vulnerable children, giving them a family and a safe community in which they can flourish.

In LIV's words, "there are millions of orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa, mostly due to HIV/AIDS. LIV focuses on a solution to aid this crisis. We place these 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."
Here is a link to their FB page for more info https://www.facebook.com/livvillage

It's an amazing organisation, with a passion to see lives turned around and a nation changed - and I am sooo excited to spend a few months of my placement year with these guys! I have been saving for this for a wee while now, but as I am paying LIV for the program itself, along with all the other costs organising and getting me there, I could do with trying to raise some funds to help and would be so grateful for your support!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my page x
