2020 and its challenges

Teaching each other

2020 is halfway through! Thabang Children’s Project is still working on the  holistic development of all its children.

At Thabang we try to include many different activities.

Besides the formal schooling at  different schools in the area; we provide opportunities to develop their academic component at home. This we do via part time teachers and volunteers.

During  special outings, the children also learn about our amazing wildlife and their importance in our bushveld area. They learn about conservation and the need to protect our wildlife.

The Thabang children are encouraged to exercise, play soccer, netball and have outdoor fun. Physical activity is treasured, and everyone is compelled to join in. 

The cultural aspect is also important. Cultural activities include playing the Marimba, painting, drawing and dancing.


During the Lock-down, the children at the Child & Youth Care centre could continue with some of these activities on site.

A donation of tablets has been an extra bonus in the Covid-19 pandemic. Thabang has helped each child do extra schoolwork at the home during this period. All staff have been involved to assist all the grades from grade R to grade 12.

Outside of the Child & Youth Care Centre, Thabang has a Drop in Centre in the informal settlement of Smash Block. Here, 45 very needy school children pop in to receive a cooked and nutritious meal before receiving help with their schoolwork and doing extra mural activities.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the children are not allowed to attend the  Drop in Centre. But these children are then not receiving their main meal of the day. So, Thabang raised funds to supply food parcels to the needy households of these children. Donors were generous and Thabang could even help extra households which were identified as being in need.
