LIV village provides holistic residential care for vulnerable children with the core vision to rescue a child, restore a life, raise a leader, and release a star. The first LIV village is situated on 31 hectares/83 acres at Cottonlands, Verulam in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

The village exists to raise the next generation of leaders in their nation. It is their mission, purpose, and passion. They place parentless children into a family environment where they receive unconditional love, spiritual discipleship, care and nurturing. As well as this the children will receive education based on Christian values in which every child can achieve his or her full potential. By these children experiencing a loving family environment and good education they can then contribute to a free and just society.

Videos, photos, updates and stories:

LIV village currently has 150 kids and 27 mums, with a number of kids joining every week and 12 mums waiting to move on to the village soon. They are also very busy at the moment building a clinic, Early Childhood Development Centre, Training Centre, Multi Purpose Hall and Tennis Court on the village.

Prayer requests:

  1. We need nurses to come volunteer at the village and other specilized medical staff to help run the clinic. Pleae pray that God sends the volunteers.
  2. Funding is always a prayer request. Especially with more kids coming onto the village. We need people to sponsor a child on monthly basis.
  3. Continue always to pray for our children and for God to heal them of their past and restore their lives. For God to show them who they are in Him and to raise them up for His Kingdom.
