Nonceba Family Counseling Centre was founded in 1997 in response to the sexual abuse problems in the township of Khayelitsha, particularly the sexual abuse of children. Nonceba, meaning “Mercy” in isiXhosa, addresses the concerning issues that have risen to epidemic proportions due to the pressing social problems affecting Khayelitsha’s community. It is the largest in the Western Cape, with an estimated population of 1.5 million people. According to STATS SA, more than 50% of residents are unemployed and live in abject poverty. One out of every three children – boys and girls – will have been subjected to sexual abuse or rape by the time they are 18. The organization aims to reduce the levels of child sexual abuse, to provide support to the abused and their families, and to prevent the scourge of sexual violation through education.


We invite those who value this beautiful country and its people to join our cause, helping to support, protect and nurture it for generations to come.
