iKhaya le themba, Home of Hope, is an NPO birthed out of Kenilworth Vineyard Church, Cape Town in 2004, with Liesl Eliastam as the visionary founder. Katherine Morse took the reigns in 2007 and further developed the staff, buildings and program. She handed over to Nicky Lloyd in 2012 to continue the legacy of care and support to orphaned and vulnerable children, and their families.
Ikhaya le Themba offers holistic After School Care programs to primary school children of Imizamo Yethu informal settlement in Hout Bay. This service includes home visiting, advocacy and referral for their family carers. We work to ensure that family units remain strong under the strain of illness and poverty and to support communities in caring for their orphaned and vulnerable children. Therefore 2 programs were set-up besides the main after school care program. These programs entail a community development program and a parent centre, all complimentary to the benefit of the child. Our community development program aims to support the families and carers of our children. This program offers support through family visits, food parcels, support groups and material assistance to our particularly impoverished families. We also work closely with other organizations to make a bigger impact in the greater community. Our parent center aims to develop our parents so they can find work or start their own businesses. We offer training workshops in skills such as English Literacy, Personal Vision, CV writing, Worker Readiness Training, food gardens, computer training, etc.
We long for a world where every child has a hope and a future and the effects of HIV and AIDS are no longer seen. At its heart, iKhayalethemba holds the core value that every child, regardless of race, colour, religion, history or current living situation is individually loved by the all encompassing love of God. It is this love that causes us to seek the very best for every child we work with in every aspect of that child’s life - physical, social, educational, emotional and spiritual. It is our belief that this love is able to bring fullness of life, freeing and empowering children to walk with God in His plans for them.
