We are a diverse team of people who seek to restore hope. Since 1997, Thembalitsha has invested in the communities of South Africa – inspiring change and offering a handup rather than a handout.


By assisting with the development and growth in the lives of those in need, we aim to ensure sustainability for each of our projects as we work alongside companies, individuals, and government departments. This holistic approach allows us to offer only the best possible care to the people we serve.







Through donations and gifting to the Thembalitsha Foundation, we are able to continue providing vital services, i.e. Education, Healthcare and Training to those in need. Our aim is to continue to assist in developing the underserved people of the Western and Eastern Cape to a point of self-reliance. We never want to become an organisation that merely provides a handout and a temporary solution to a larger problem.


All gifts and donations get used entirely in transforming lives through our projects and initiatives. There is also an option to designate your donation should you feel passionate about a particular initiative. We are audited by Deloitte and Touche, thereby ensuring transparency of all funds donated, this ensures peace of mind for you, the funder.

If you are interested in supporting us financially or a specific initiative, please click the donate button below of your appropriate country and you will be able to make a once-off or monthly donation.


A thank you letter is sent out to our donors once their donation has been received and if required we will send you a tax certificate too.


We would not be able to do it without your support - thank you for giving so generously!
