Takathemba: Zukunft für Kinder in Südafrika

managed by Debbie J.

About us

Your donation helps to cover the basic needs of these children.

As a South African living in Germany, I chose not to ignore the problems in my country. So I started supporting various projects while on holiday. Since 10 years we are a registered foundation in Germany. In 2010 we started supporting the AIDS orphans from the villages close to the border of Lesotho. Yumelela is a place where the orphans have a safe refuge. We also have “social orphans” whose parents have forsaken them to find work in the cities. Their promised support for these children has unfortunately never happened. Most of the children are traumatized. We support them in their grief and encourage them to collect/keep objects from their parents in a special “Memory Box”. These objects comfort them in tough times.
The children need school books and start-up-support when they finish school to enable them to qualify and eventually find work.

Die Waisenkinder sind im Trauer und brauchen viel Unterstützung und Trost.  "Memory Boxen" werden angefertigt, manchmal noch zur Lebzeiten der Mutter.  Hier haben die Kinder Gelegenheit Gegenstände (Kette, Schal, Kopftuch usw)  der Mutter aufzubewahren als Erinnerung und auch als Trost in schwere Zeiten.
