Education starts at home, that’s why we endeavor to nurture and support our children through strong family structure.




For over ten years, Focus on iThemba has been involved with cluster foster care for orphaned and vulnerable children on the iThemba Campus. 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 will still provide 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 with only a few finishing their Grade 12 studies. We continue to support and love our Fledglings who are currently doing their tertiary studies.
