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 had on our country and population.


The seed for the vision of a care center for children abandoned or orphaned because of HIV/AIDS, was planted in December of 1997. As statistics of AIDS orphans were released to the public through the media, it was apparent that none, or very little provision was being made to tend to the children who would remain after the death of their HIV/AIDS infected parents. AIDS Mission Outreach Trust (AIDSMO) embarked on a programme to meet these children’s needs – Lebone House!! (Lebone means LIGHT in Sesotho). Lebone House was established in May 2000 and initially opened its doors as a day care facility for HIV/AIDS infected/affected children.

At Lebone we aim to provide the children with a loving environment, where we care for their physical needs – love, acceptance, a safe environment, clothing, food, education, medical care etc. – from the time the child is accepted at Lebone House and for the duration of his or her life as a child. The child is deemed to be an adult on his/her eighteenth birthday, all to be admitted to the programme on the basis of their need. No means test is required and no fee is charged.


Ten years on bears witness of God’s greatness when one sees the miracles that have occurred: the acquisition of our own property; more than six times the children; an Education Centre for Lebone children & day scholars from the community; a skills  development centre for the  upliftment and empowerment of family members of the children & the poor & needy; more than half the property under agricultural production enabling the feeding of 600+ people as well as generating income for Lebone;  a counselling, social support &  training section.    ALL this enlarging the vision given us and sure proof that Lebone has been able to accomplish more that it undertook to do within 5 years.   Proof indeed of the abundance & grace of our faithful God who has provided through so many who have been obedient to  His Call – proof indeed of how mere mortals have been able to attempt something large enough that failure is guaranteed ……. UNLESS GOD STEPS IN.
