Khanya Family Centre
is a South African not-for-profit organisation that provides free psychosocial services for children and families in disadvantaged communities.
Since 1994 we’ve worked within townships in Johannesburg and Pretoria offering counselling and support to help
those affected by problems associated with extreme poverty including HIV AIDS.
To us at Khanya, 21st Century South Africa is an energetic mix of progressive values and modernisation with vibrant and traditional cultures. We are a developing country with limited resources but as our national motto goes: We are alive with possibilities. South Africa is full of promise and a country to be proud of.
Yet millions of South Africans still suffer daily from the destructive and appalling levels of both poverty and HIV-AIDS.
We passionately believe that emotional and mental wellbeing is a key step in managing and rebuilding the lives of affected
individuals, families and communities.
From our origins working in townships with victims of political violence that occurred in the final years of Apartheid,
to today’s ever growing number of child headed families due to HIV AIDS, we work tirelessly to support those
most disadvantaged in our society.
