Ikhaya le Themba is a faith-based NPO (046-634) operating into the heart of Khayelitsha. Established in 2003, Ian and Theresa Richardson felt a calling in their hearts to empower communities throughout Southern Africa, to take care of the terminally and chronically ill and to deal with the implications of illness and death.
We strive to create employment opportunities for the previously disadvantaged and unemployed, to equip their members to care for vulnerable families through Community Development and various other programmes. Our heart is to empower and give a sense of worth to the community and it's people through our vehicle called "Indalo". Part of the business model is to create enterprise opportunities to selected individuals from poor communities. These individuals will go through a series of skills and enterprise development, mentoring and preparation to run small franchised enterprises (Indalo business model) in their communities.
