iThemba Projects wishes to raise funds for their ‘Asidlale’ (let’s play, in isiZulu) project. This project entails the mentoring of five crèches in Sweetwaters in the Umgungundlovu District Municipality, KwaZulu-Natal. The mentoring and support involves planning workshops, hosting of networking teas for teachers, surprise visits, coordinating volunteers, assisting with assessment of children and teachers, programme development and the preparation of incentive based resourcing.

iThemba Projects' mission is to bring hope for a better future.

Research shows that the best way to tackle unemployment and poor education is by improving Early Childhood Development (ECD). Sadly, the preschools in Sweetwaters do not provide for the development of those key skills that are essential to brain stimulation and development. Through the Asidlale program, iThemba Projects staff and volunteers mentor teachers, run training workshops, create teacher support groups, and provide resources for school curriculum.
