For nearly 15 years, Focus on iThemba has been involved with cluster foster care for orphaned and vulnerable children. From 2016 the iThemba Homes concept was adapted into the Esther Model. This model allows families who wish to foster an iThemba child to do so in their own home. iThemba provides professional support for the family through our Social Worker and the funds required for education, clothing and food. Our original iThembaKids (foster children) have mostly completed their schooling. We continue to support and love our Fledglings who are currently completing their tertiary studies.
