Our Work

Lily of the Valley is so much more than a Children’s village. Our vision is for both our children and the community we live in. We aim to care for children infected or affected by HIV / AIDS through the amelioration of pain, suffering and distress. In doing this, to provide accommodation, food, clothing, relief and other amenities to the ill and infirm and, through providing a multi-disciplinary, all encompassing range of support, to promote the physical, mental and spiritual welfare of the community.


LilyCrossSustainable, servant leaders for healthy communities.

The vision is to raise leaders who embody patience, kindness, humility, service above self, truth, protection, hope, trust and perseverance.

We see these as characteristics to be upheld in any position of leadership, whether that be in the classroom, home or workplace. We seek to raise leaders for every sector of society that will embody these traits and work together for a healthy community. In the eighteen years of serving orphaned and vulnerable children and the surrounding communities, not once has any person been turned away on the basis of their religious belief or culture. Whilst we hold unswervingly to the message of Jesus Christ, no person will ever be turned away for not holding the same belief as we do.
