Onthatile Children’s Ministries is a non-profit organization that rescues abandoned babies located in Johannesburg, South Africa. We provide a safe haven for these children until they can be placed in forever families, sometimes through adoption and other times through long term foster care.
Onthatile was founded in 2012 by Joel and Rachel Kirby and we took our first baby the end of that year. It is our goal to provide a safe and nurturing environment for the babies placed in our care. Ultimately we pray each of these little lives hear the gospel and believe in Christ for their salvation. Since beginning, we have had 23+ children in our home and have assisted with 26+ adoptions/foster care placements.
