iThemba Trust

iThemba Projects partners with the community of Mpumuza (Sweetwaters) to transform a generation of kids and teens through mentoring and education so that they can bring hope to their community and be a light throughout South Africa. 

iThemba believes that when communities are restored, everyone benefits. We’ve seen destructive cycles in Sweetwaters caused by economic inequality, racism, poor education, and a lack of role models and  opportunities. At iThemba, we partner with people in the Sweetwaters community, working together to break these cycles. By working together and listening to each other, we believe we can create an environment that is empowering, where people can realize their full potential. We don’t think our work is a one-way street. When communities like Sweetwaters are restored, all of us benefit.

Through our early childhood education, nutrition, construction skills development, and youth mentoring programmes, we are reaching oaver 1500 young people each week -- helping parents, teachers, kids, and teens reach their full potential.
