What Bethany provides


We believe that the key to Bethany's success is a holistic rehabilitation.

That is why we not only provide a safe haven but also provide psychological and

physical rehabilitation and support, and moreover, strive to empower each woman to become self-supporting and economically independent.



Have a look at a video made by one of our funders,

the Anglo American's Chairman's Fund,  in 2013 of the work we do here.



Below is a list of some of the things we provide at Bethany -

  -   accommodation and food;

  -   a safe and loving environment;

  -   counselling for the women and their children;

  -   referrals for medical attention;

  -   legal assistance from highly qualified volunteers;

  -   assistance in obtaining identity documents and other documents;

  -   occupational therapy in the form of craft participation;

-   training in various vocations/skill-sets;

-   basic skills training, such as computer training;

-   assistance in finding the Bethany women employment; and

  -   assistance in placing the Bethany kids into pre-schools and schools.
