Become a Hero of Hope!

Please contact us for a full funding proposal or to discuss a certain project you would like to support. Focus on iThemba is a non-profit, public benefit (18a) organisation. If you feel moved to support our work of Growing Hearts and Minds, there are two options available to you:

1. Donating regularly

Partner with us. Our partners give on a regular basis through a standing monthly debit order. We value every gift and these regular contributions are of enormous value to us as they provide us with some certainty of income and allows us to plan for the future and take on long term projects. If you would like to sign up for a monthly donation, please contact us and we would love to get in touch with you.

2. Donating a Once-off Gift
