Lokukhanya (House of Light) or KL as it affectionately called

can take up to 18 children but our aim is to keep vulnerable
children in the care of their own families within their communities.
Only when it is impossible to foster a child within their
own family, does the social worker place them at Khaya Lokukhanya.
washing and educating 17 children doesn't come cheap! The
foster mothers and social workers receive a small incentive
or stipend each month, as do the Thusananga HBCA volunteers.
