Spotlight on... Immanuel's HavenImmanuel's Haven ProfileWhat does your organisation do?
Haven is a place of care for children at risk. We have 18 children
full time with us for who we care for. We have a crèche with 32
disadvantaged children in it. Our plan is to present upliftment
courses to the parents of these children as well as other adults and
youth. Our computer lab is nearly complete to present computer courses
to these people and youth.
