GLORIFYING GOD BY SERVING THE VULNERABLE CHILDREN OF THE NATION.

This is why LIV exists. We focus on the solution and set out to do this by bringing hope and a future to the most vulnerable. Together we can!

BRINGING CHANGE ON A LARGE SCALE

Everything we do at LIV is aimed at rescuing vulnerable children, restoring their lives, and raising up the next generation of leaders, leaving a legacy for those to come.

We’re passionate about unleashing the potential of every child. Each of our villages has its own unique programmes and initiatives, all designed to help children reach their full potential and become the stars they were created to be.

RESCUE A CHILD. RESTORE A LIFE. RAISE A LEADER. RELEASE A STAR.

Orphaned and vulnerable children are rescued by the Department of Social Services & other child-protection services and then placed at LIV, where they receive love and care.

RESCUING

Children

LIV recreates family life in multiple ways. Restoration happens with the help of trained foster mothers, qualified staff and volunteers through our various villages and programmes.

RESTORING

Lives

LIV BELIEVES THAT EVERY CHILD HAS A GOD-GIVEN PURPOSE AND TALENT. ACROSS THE NATION AT OUR VILLAGES AND PROJECTS, WE WORK TO NURTURE AND RAISE UP CHILDREN TO REACH THEIR FULL POTENTIAL

TO BE RELEASED AS A STAR AT LIV MEANS THAT EACH CHILD WE WORK WITH, IS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO INTO THE NEXT PHASE OF LIFE - LOVED AND EQUIPPED WITH ESSENTIAL MORAL VALUES & LIFE SKILLS

OUR STORY

Our story began from a vision birthed in the heart of Tich Smith in 1997, and LIV Village opened in Durban in 2011.

Since then, LIV has expanded to 5 more villages and projects across the country, which are in various stages of development with more growth to come.
