Hi, I’m Kirsten, I am the Project Manager at Zanethemba’s Safe Haven.

A little about myself: My husband, Ryan, and I have 3 children: two lovely daughters and an awesome son.
We moved to Port Elizabeth in 2005, and love living in this Friendly City.

Both my husband and I were involved in youth ministry. I gained experience working at a couple of different preschools. Above all else I believe God has given me a heart for children.

I started as a volunteer at Zanethemba at the beginning of 2015, and prayed for a way to do more. Now I have the privilege of providing a “home”, filled with love & hope, for little ones who need a temporary safe place.
In return I receive unconditional love and boundless joy from these precious children.
My prayer for each child, is that God will work all things out for their good. For He alone knows the plans He has, to give them a hope and a future. (Jer.29:11)

Each child that comes captures a piece of my heart. And that’s where they stay, always in my heart, even when they move on from Zanethemba. If you come visit us, I’m sure you’d feel much the same!
