Support Nkosi's project

Nkosi’s Haven is the dream project of Nkosi Johnson, to whom the International Children’s Peace Prize was dedicated posthumously in 2015 . In his short life Nkosi advocated for the rights of children with HIV/AIDS. Nkosi’s Haven was founded in 1999 by Gail Johnson, Nkosi’s foster mother. KidsRights has supported Nkosi’s Haven since 2005.

Shelter for mothers and children affected with HIV/AIDS

Nkosi’s Haven provides a safe home for vulnerable mothers with HIV/AIDS and their children. Nkosi’s Haven gives mothers and children the opportunity to continue their life together, even if the mother is too ill to take care of her children. In addition, Nkosi’s Haven provides a home for children who have been orphaned by AIDS. Nkosi’s Haven provides a safe home for over 100 children and about 25 mothers. The children receive quality education, health care, good nutrition, housing and support.


The right to education is often a challenge for children who are infected with HIV/AIDS. Getting a good quality education is of the upmost importance at Nkosi’s Haven. The children who live in Nkosi’s Haven receive their education at schools inside the community.
