Here are a few of the local groups, organizations, businesses and trusts who make our work possible:
MUSIC FESTIVAL VOLUNTEER Our Danish friends recruit a team of people to volunteer at a music festival every year, and donate the proceeds to iThemba.
DIRECTED AND PRODUCED A PLAY Our friend in Cambridge, UK, directed and produced the play "Sophiatown" in honor of iThemba.
RESTAURANT TIPS Our friend in South Africa who runs her own restaurant keeps an "iThemba tip jar" out for customers to donate. She also has hosted an Open Gardens in honor of iThemba, and one year on Mandela Day, donated her profits for 56minutes in honor of Mandela's challenge to do 56 minutes of service to your community.
RAN One of our UK friends ran 50km to raise money for iThemba!
SWAM THE ENGLISH CHANNEL A supporter in the UK swam the English channel and donated proceeds to iThemba. We've also had our South African friends swim the Midmar Mile and use it as a fundraiser for camp.
DONATED BIRTHDAYS We've had friends in the UK, US and South Africa donate their birthdays to iThemba- instead of presents, they ask for iThemba donations. One friend in Denmark donated their daughter's christening service!
These are our partner organizations overseas who help connect us with friends and supporters from all over the world! We're so thankful for the work they do advocating for the work of iThemba.
