MEMBERS OF VUYANI SAFE HAVEN:

For any Non-Profit Organisation to function legally, it needs members.  At this stage Vuyani Safe Haven’s membership fees are R100 per year.  The members select the Board at each AGM (usually in August or September of each year).  Our members are important to us, because they, with their selected Board, need to carry the vision and mission of Vuyani from one year to the next.
