“Morning Star Children’s Centre is a day care facility for
underprivileged children who are infected with HIV/AIDS.
It was born out of deep Christian compassion for the plight our Nation finds
itself in due to the escalating HIV/AIDS pandemic currently sweeping through our
land. We are committed to restoring hope to the women and children of our region
and making a meaningful change to as many families as possible. This we achieve
through our optimum care, nutritious meals, appropriate medication, stimulating
activities and the love we show to the 140 children attending our 2 Centres.
One aspect of Morning Star’s focus lies in assisting our children's
mothers/guardians become self-supportive by way of our job-creation programme,
Tshedisanang Women's Sewing Project.”
Tshedisanang Women' s Embroidery/Sewing Project's primary goals are:
To provide meaningful and creative activities for the mothers and carers of the
children attending Morning Star.
To create a support base for women infected/affected by HIV/AIDS so that, as
well as providing for and sustaining their families, they can share with one
another and work towards living positively with their disease.

Morning Star as we strive towards a better life for women and children
infected/affected by HIV/AIDS. Our focus, whilst taking care of the day-to-day
activities of looking after and treating the children, is also to work towards
longer-lasting solutions that will improve the mindset and living conditions of
those living in the poorer communities by giving information on HIV/AIDS and
equipping them with skills on how to sustain themselves in the future.
Officially opened on 9th October 2006, our Kutlwanong Day Care Centre caters for
40 -45 HIV/AIDS children living in Kutlwanong Township.
