Check out our Za newsletter below for the latest news about the After School Clubs and details of our new project, Sponsor a Child.

Help give orphans and vulnerable children a chance of a future


Sponsoring a Child for just £10 per month will pay for an orphan or vulnerable child to attend one of our After School Clubs in South Africa.

Our three After School Clubs in South Africa are run by our partner charity Thembalethu, and support a total of 300 children every day. These clubs are not like the ones in the UK, where kids just go and play after school, often waiting to be picked up by parents. In fact many of the children who attend these clubs do not have parents and live with either relatives or older siblings or are sometimes the older sibling in charge of the household. They may also be children whose life situation makes them very vulnerable. The future is grim for these children but the clubs provide a safe haven, food and guidance, where otherwise there is none.
