Rainbow Lighthouse has developed an affinity for helping orphans – not small children who have been left without parents, but people who as children suffered loss as an orphan and have carried the loneliness and rejection and the feeling of not belonging through their lives. These people come and stay at Rainbow Lighthouse Centre and work as a volunteer in administration or in the gardens.
We are in the process of building several ‘yurts’ and facilities where people can stay for a short time while they re-energise and work as a volunteer.
