The Vision of the Viva Foundation of South Africa is to be instrumental in the transformation of informal settlement & other high-priority poverty areas into stable and safe neighbourhoods offering education, business-, employment and recreation opportunities to all members of the community.
The aim is to establish service centres within the communities we serve, from where we can offer a palette of services with the help of strategic partners.
Viva has 4 Focus Areas:
