Welcome to the New iKhaya 3 House Parents

It is with much excitement, peace and gratitude that we welcome the new Houseparents and their daughter to oversee iKhaya 3. The iKhaya 3 building is up and complete. The cherry on the top was the final 'touch' - the family - Honest, Ellen and Rachel to iKhaya 3. Ellen is presently undergoing some training and in time our little ones from iKhaya 2 will be able to move into iKhaya 3. They will benefit hugely from the amazing new home, but more than that, from a loving set of parents and older sibling.

The plan is for the current iKhaya 2 home to be able to look after the smaller babies and young toddlers and for the older pre-schoolers and school-going children to find a home and security under the care of their family in iKhaya 3. This means that we will be able to go up in number by about 6 children, in this way growing iKhaya and impacting our Community.

Honest and Ellen have been accepted with open arms by the staff and children of iKhaya, as well as Solid Ground Church. They have spent much time with their new family and on the Property and an amazing sense of family has emanated at iKhaya LikaBaba.
