Oliver House


The Khayalethu Oliver House (known as K2) was established in 2007 and provides an opportunity for those Khayalethu boys who have completed their formal schooling to extend their stay for a period of time, in order to better prepare for the workplace and life outside of Khayalethu.

Part of our strength in the success of the Khayalethu Oliver House has been to align ourselves with reputable and caring businesses such as Ocean Divers International, Haenco Engineering, APS Connections, TNT Express, Parmalat, Total Shopfitters, and Atlas Security. It is imperative that companies build a relationship with Khayalethu over time in order for them to want to invest in the future of our young men at Khayalethu Oliver House. Companies such as those already mentioned give a hand up to these young men, rather than a handout – a much more important role in society!

Our heartfelt thanks go out to Oliver Foundation and the businesses in Port Elizabeth, who are willing to invest of their time, training, resources and finances over as much as a three year apprenticeship training period.

It is our firm belief, that with the right education from caring businesses and individuals such as these, our young men will integrate and sustain themselves and their future families in a responsible and educated manner
