Welcome to Ya Bana Village!

Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these. - Matthew 19:14

Ya Bana, which means "for the children", is a village project aimed at providing orphaned and vulnerable children with permanent housing in a family environment.  Trained house mothers offer love and structure along with ongoing programs to holistically address emotional, educational, spiritual, and cultural needs. 

​Thanks to many volunteers and ministry partners in the US, South Africa, and elsewhere, Ya Bana Village continues to flourish.
