Only 16% of children in the province of Kwa-Zulu-Natal have access to early childhood education.

Thanda is based in a rural community in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. District-wide, the unemployment rate hovers around 76% and three in five households live off of an income of less than R500 ($50 USD) per month. Nearly half of our learners are orphans due to having lost a parent or relative to HIV/AIDS. With a 41% HIV prevalence rate, the province of KwaZulu-Natal ranks as having the third highest HIV rate in South Africa.

We are gathering friends and family to rollerblade, run or walk 12 miles, starting in San Francisco, across the Golden Gate Bridge, to fundraise money for Thanda.

Thanda supports people through all stages of their development by offering Early Childhood Development, After-school Education, and Agriculture Development programmes. Their program aims to develop people into curious, life-long learners and critical thinkers who are proud of whom they are and where they come from. Thanda focuses on building their learners' confidence, knowledge, and skills so that they have the tools necessary to break the cycle of generational poverty.

If you cannot join us, please donate to this amazing cause! The funds you donate will help provide nutritious meals for 500 kids who attend Thanda After-School.

To give you an idea of how far the pound goes, one plate of food costs 0.15p and when you include Thanda cooks time, gas, supplies etc. it costs 0.29p per meal.

  • One child's lunch for the year: $65
  • 500 children's lunch for the year: $32,500

With your help, we can ensure that these kids are healthy, happy and able to learn!
