iKhaya le Themba

iKhaya le themba provides holistic care to children and families made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS and other difficult life circumstances.

We are working in Imizamo Yethu, Cape Town with 100 children aged 6-12 years. The project is an initiative of Kenilworth Vineyard Church with separate charity registration and administration.

iKhaya le themba, meaning home of hope, offers after school care with structured programs in a safe and stimulating environment. The programs include educational support, life skills, therapeutic groups as well as opportunities for fun and play and a good meal.

Parents and carers are supported by our community worker through home visits, referral and advocacy. Parenting groups are run offering parent education, emotional support and life skills such as budgeting.
