iThemba Lethu

restoring hope

and destiny in vulnerable children


It takes many drops to form a river!

Every person that adds their heads, hearts and hands to reducing vulnerability in babies, child, young people or families in Durban, South Africa helps to bring greater healing and restoration! 

So whether you are wading on the advocacy banks, building bridges of reconciliation through adoption/education or filling buckets with the necessary resources –  it is ultimately your commitment to partner with an established NGO partner like iThemba Lethu, that makes the difference!

Since 2001, iThemba Lethu has been placing vulnerable babies/children into permanent families, in addition to equipping the youth and leaders of tomorrow with belief & hope through life skills education to help them make wiser lifestyle decisions, and then empowering their parents/caregivers to build resilient home units too!

Does this inspire you to help? If yes, how would you like to get involved? 

How we restore hope
