Success Stories

The Youth Village educational concept as applied in our 6 villages is designed to introduce wholeness and coherence to some 2,500 young lives that otherwise are bombarded by the chaotic onslaught of 21st century stimuli. They come to us broken, silent, confused, often violent, sometimes deviant and always underperforming.

In our Villages they embark on their journey of leadership.

The vast majority of our graduates leave our villages with a sense of direction and security about their future, with life skills that enable them to grow into successful, compassionate members of society and with the intention of becoming positive role models for others.
