Thanda is a community-based organisation that provides innovative solutions for sustainable development. We aim to create safer, stronger communities by providing educational and skills-building opportunities to individuals. Our mission is to empower people to create positive change - change in individuals, change in their communities and eventually changes that impact the world.

We believe that five essential skills are necessary for the effective development of every individual: self-esteem, perspective, empathy, critical thinking and creativity. Without these skills in place, people are not equipped to overcome challenges or stand up for what is ethical. Through our four core programmes outlined below, we aim to fill that void and inspire good neighbours, good citizens, and the next generation of resilient, confident young adults who contribute to a better world.

Our core programmes include:
1) Early Childhood Development
2) After-school education
3) Organic Farming
4) Creative Learning Training


Community

Cape Town, Cape Town City Centre

Ladles of Love is a volunteer-run soup kitchen and feeding program for people in need. Since inception in July 2014 where we started with one kitchen each Tuesday, we've expanded significantly. We now serve 3 meals a week without fail to the homeless community.

Now we are expanding into primary schools - focusing on providing nutritious, fresh food to young learners coming to school without a meal of their own. We now feed approx 760 students lunch each week.

All food is vegetarian and is freshly prepared in the kitchen of Doppio Zero, St George’s Mall. The soup is a thick wholesome broth of potatoes, butternut, carrots, lentils and rice with a careful blend of spices - cooked over a number of hours to create a delicious meal.
