Ingane Yami is an isiZulu word meaning “My Child”.

Ingane Yami Children’s Village is not an orphanage in the traditional sense. Rather, it is a permanent, loving home for orphaned and vulnerable children.

The Village is located just outside of Durban, in the Shongweni Valley. Unlike a traditional orphanage, the Village consists of individuals homes. Each home is home to six children and a carefully selected foster mother. Our team includes social workers, an on-site Village Pastor, qualified teachers and a committed support team. Everyone works together to ensure each child’s emotional, educational, physical and spiritual needs are met.
