The children opening their presents!

The Christmas party this year was life changing for the iKhaya le Themba children.  Many of them had never received a Christmas present before in their lives.  Words cannot express their shock and joy as they opened the lavish gifts.

A Question for the Youth of Khayelitsha

Christmas Parties and Aquarium Visit

The kids had an amazing time at the aquarium in December! One of them commented today “Seeing those fish helps me to know that God is real”.  They love the exhibits – screamed as they encountered the crabs, played with seaweed and gaped at the luminous jelly fish.  Thanks to everyone at Joshua Generation who […]
