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.
The AIDS Mission Outreach Trust t/a Lebone Village is a faith based non profit organisation situated just outside Bloemfontein in the Free State, South Africa. Lebone Village is dedicated to bringing hope, dignity and support by providing holistic care to all vulnerable children, youth, their families, 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.
