In 2000 the Lebone candle was lit – a candle giving light in the darkness to many without hope for the future. “Lebone” is the Sotho word meaning “Light” and that is what Lebone is all about, giving light to those in darkness and without hope.
Lebone Village is a faith based non profit organisation situated just outside Bloemfontein in the Free State province, South Africa. Lebone Village is dedicated to bringing hope, dignity and support by providing holistic care to all vulnerable children, their families, ALL people affected by poverty. Most of our children are orphaned because of the devastating effect HIV / AIDS has on our country. We currently have 5 sections in which we try to meet the needs of many. These are Lebone House, Lebone Counselling, Lebone Edu Centre , Lebone Skills development and Lebone Agriculture.

We want to give all the glory and honor to God for we know it is only by His Grace.
