Initiatives

Who makes all this possible?

Every Nation Church Joburg

The African Havens are the compassion and social ministry outreaches of Every Nation Church Joburg. Every Nation Joburg and its friends are the primary South African supporters to the African Havens. The majority of our volunteers are also members and friends of Every Nation Joburg.

Grace Covenant Church, Chantilly, Virginia

Grace Covenant Church of Chantilly Virginia, USA, a member of the Every Nation Family of Churches, sent Pastors David and Caroline Webb to work with Every Nation Joburg to develop the African Havens ministry in 2001. The church and its members are significant supporters of the African Havens. They sponsor major gift drives, including the 2010 drive for the purchase of the first Baby Haven and annual Christmas gifts for all the children.

Other Regular Donors and Supporters

A significant portion of African Havens’ funds come from private supporters who, for the sake of privacy are not named here, however, we are deeply grateful for their continual support.

History

African Havens started out as “The Alex Education Outreach” in 1995 and became “Masiphane Projects” in 1998. African Havens, through its numerous projects and initiatives, continues to provide a hope and a future to people all over Joburg.

An emphasis on residential care started when the first Baby Haven opened in 2003. A series of articles in the Johannesburg newspapers highlighted the large numbers of babies abandoned in local hospitals.
