Thušanang

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.

Thusanang Trust

One of our core values and pillars that keeps us upright and focussed as race organizers, Volhardt Adventures, is our community focus.For us - "community" means the following:Your own community, the friends and family that you get to share this precious gift that is life. It also means the broader community around you, and for the Magoebas Ultra Trail, this means the broader community of Magoebaskloof and Limpopo. This country and local tourism has been hard hit with the COVID-pandemic, but your participation and commitment to travel to Magoebaskloof for the Magoebas Forest Marathon is already a big form of support to the local tourism industry, and for that we thank you!As race organizers and race, we will also be supporting other organisations within the Magoebaskloof and Limpopo community that does amazing work, each in their own respective field. We will be raising funds that will be donated to these various organisations. We want to encourage you as runner to get involved with this initiative - let's use the scale of the race to make each small individual contribution part of a bigger contribution that will impact these organisations in a positive way.The first organisation we want to introduce to you is the Thusanang Trust.Thušanang, meaning 'to help one another' is a non profit organisation founded in 1986.
