About Us


Ya Bana Village was founded in 2006 when 8 hectares of property was bought by the Mabopane Foundation USA.

The property was registered in the name of a section 21 Company, in terms of the Companies Act, 1973, (Reg No 2006/018471/08) and the property was rezoned for the development of a Village for Children. Currently, the organisation is registered as a non-profit organisation, in terms of the Non-Profit Organization Act, 1997 (079-399NPO) and it is registered as a Child and Youth care centre  in terms of Section 200 of the CHILDREN’S ACT (Act No. 38 of 2005)

Our Village is surrounded by a community which still finds it difficult to cast off the shackles of poverty.
