WHAT WE DO

MISSION
To provide centres for the reception, care and development for orphans and vulnerable children and youth
To empower family structures through health education and Home-Based care services, advocacy to families and communities, through partnership with other stake holders

VISION
THABANG is an organisation that empowers children, families and communities to restore their dignity and independence

THABANG Childrens Project is a South African private Non-Profit- and Welfare Organisation, that aims to meet the needs of children affected by HIV/Aids and Poverty.

It is located near Thabazimbi, Limpopo and runs three operational arms.
1. THABANG Community Care Centre in Smash Block, an informal settlement of about 17,500 people living in tin shacks without power or sewage. The centre runs Home-based Care, Orphan care, support groups and a community vegetable garden.
2. THABANG Childrens Place of Safety that accommodates up to 24 children that have no one to looks after them: abandoned or abused babies, girls up to the age of 18 and boys up to the age of 10 years.
3. THABANG Youth Centre that accommodates up to 16 boys, that committed poverty related crimes or suffer from lack of parental care, like street boys.

Underlying concept of THABANG is to assist children in a variety of ways by having three facilities. Prevention always comes prior to intervention. In practice that means, that destitute families or households are first counselled and supported, before an admission of children into residential care is considered.

BACKGROUND
The Trust has been approved to be a Non-Profit organisation in March 2005 when Egon Mauss nephew, Martin Schulte-Frohlinde moved from Germany to Thabazimbi with his wife, Viveka Ansorge and their 15-year-old daughter. Martin, being an architect and carpenter took care of the reconstruction and building works for the project.

A former game lodge, with the surrounding land being donated by Egon Mauss to the Trust, was changed into a childrens home and the Youth Centre was newly built on the farm of Cecil White, who leases his land to the Project.

In Smash Block, a small piece of land at the entrance was fenced in, Northam Platinum donated a trailor home, THABANG put in a second one and the Northam Clinic sent two nurses to offer daily services to the 20.000 people of Smash Block, who live without electricity, water supply and sewerage: the THABANG Community Care Cent
