Thembalitsha Foundation

Thabisa’s Story

Thabisa started her journey with Thembalitsha Foundation in 2015 as the principal at Agape Educare. Throughout the last seven years, she has provided love, joy, strength, creativity, and support to every child that has walked through her doors. Additionally, her leadership skills were one of a kind, leading teachers, parents and staff to making Agape a leading Educare Center. In June 2022, Thabisa was appointed as our Early Childhood Manager, overseeing all 3 of the Thembalitsha ECD projects. Her networking skills, heart to empower women and love for children make her a wonderful asset in this new position.

When Thabisa was asked what her greatest accomplishment is, she shares: 
“My greatest accomplishment is that I’m able to reach out to the next generation through quality education because I believe that children are the future leaders of this nation. By giving them love and good values will make them make wise decisions in the future.”

When translated from Xhosa, our name “Thembalitsha” means “new hope”.

Our Aim

At Thembalitsha, we aim to restore and bring a new sense of hope to the destitute, forgotten and vulnerable people of the Western and Eastern Cape.
