Thušanang, meaning 'to help one another' is a non profit organisation founded in 1986. Our core focus is the development and well-being of the young child. The majority of our activities are conducted through community-based Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres where we reach the communities through the ECD practitioners, committees and parents.

Residential training is offered at our Centre in Haenertsburg and workshops and community dialogues take place at venues in the rural areas that are more accessible to our beneficiaries.

Our vision:

To create a sustainable environment for the development and well-being of young children.

Our mission:

To provide opportunities for building capacity in communities to support and improve the lives of young children and their families.

Our objectives are to: 

  • Contribute towards universal access to quality ECD, securing an equal start for all children through capacity building programmes
  • Advocate and create public awareness on the importance of early childhood development and care in the rural communities where Thušanang is active
  • Share and provide skills and information in rural communities where it affects the wellbeing of the young child
  • Build capacity of women in particular to empower them to play an important role in their families and communities.
