How can I help as a volunteer?
As an independent organisation, Ithemba faces financial struggles. Therefore, they welcome all volunteers, local as much as internationals. Anybody that wants to donate their time to work with children with disabilities is more than welcome to contact Ithemba directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ithemba also has a long history with german volunteers. People interested can inform themselves about the weltwaerts program by the German government (www.weltwaerts.de) or get in contact with Bezev.eV (www.bezev.de), a german organisation that sends out volunteers to Ithemba.
