Creating connections from what is, to what can be for women globally.
Every woman. Everywhere.
Who We Are
Havilah Collective is a global non profit community fiercely committed to justice for women and children trapped in cycles of despair, poverty, and violence. We are joining forces; sharing resources. Together, we build bridges where the need is greatest. We support leaders of the community, those already acting on behalf of another. As a non-profit, our ethos is to work directly with local women, especially mothers, to hear their needs, fill in the gap, work toward disrupting patterns, and facilitate long-term healing. For the women and mothers who are carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders, we see you.
We imagine mothers and women acquiring global job skills, becoming financially independent, learning to drive cars, and fulfilling their purposes in life. And while they break generational cycles they are setting an example for their own children to follow.
What We Do
We believe mothers should be seen as heroes in their own stories. We share resources, experiences, wisdom, and stories. We share songs and cultures and meals and belonging. We go to the women and mothers who are most vulnerable, who are suffering in cycles of poverty and violence. This can look like finding immediate safety in violent situations where a woman and children need a safe place to stay because they are in imminent danger. It includes feeding, clothing, and caring for children and families who are suffering and unable to properly care for their children. We provide food, school fees, school uniforms, medical aid, funeral expenses, etc. We currently offer over 1000 meals per week to kids and vulnerable adults. It includes emotional care for victims of ongoing, constant trauma where there is no relief in sight. We partner with local counselors, job skills coordinators, and social workers to help guide women to their nearest rescue point and then walk with them to help meet their needs. We want to write a different narrative. Capetown, South Africa, and beyond.
Join Our Global Community
Around the globe, women, girls and mothers carry the weight of the world on their shoulders. But who supports them? It's time to create a community that helps shoulder the burden for women already doing the work. We are are a US registered 501 (c)3 non profit. Our work is focused currently in based in Capetown, South Africa.
There is no hope for a different legacy without the promise of a good education. Help keep kids in school and away from gangs by financially providing for mandatory school uniforms, school supplies and school fees.
Without food security, anything else we offer is irrelevant. Help put food on the table for families in need. Provide two meals a day for 90 school children.
Two staff leaders live in gang-controlled areas. Giving them a place to thrive and care for others will expand their capacity to serve others and change their family legacy. Cost: $52k
Internet access, public transportation, phone data, and daily living expenses should not be the barrier that keeps women from opportunity. Help bridge this preventable gap that stops women from thriving.
