While testing at Ya Bana Village during March 2016, Jeff Morris photographed the children and created this photo essay:


Ya Bana Village, based in Winterveld, South Africa, provides permanent housing to vulnerable and orphaned children where trained house mothers offer love and structure. The Village believes that in order for children to become balanced and productive citizens of society, they need holistic care. Their programs focus on the physical, emotional, educational, spiritual and cultural needs of the child.

Ya Bana Pre-primary School is located on the premises and under full management of the Ya Bana directorate. It is attended by 170 children from the Winterveld/Mabopane community.
