THEMBALETHU FOUNDATION

 changing lives of African girl child and bringing hope.


The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that the health of the African woman is affected by a plethora of factors, most of which revolve around lack of adequate health facilities and infrastructure. The African girl children often find themselves at crossroads between cultural norms that work against them and the demand to survive in the patriarchal war torn communities, which forces the girls to enter a “formal work place” which also includes prostitution at a very early age, as a result of poverty and due to the attitude of the parents towards the girl child. This greatly force girls to face severe challenges and difficulties in the society, which begins at a very young age. 


Rape: In many cases, young rape victims are left with unwanted pregnancies. As long as the rape statistics remain as high as they are and as long as the myths like, sleeping with a virgin will cure HIV&AIDS persist, the number of rape victims will continue to increase. Leaving an African girl child in a very vulnerable state


SAVE A GIRL CHILD NO WOMAN NO WORLD
People love to have a mother, wife, girlfriend and sister. Then why not help a daughter the woman of tomorrow

GIRLS ARE OVERLOOKED THEIR END IS A TRAGEDY

The girls have been overlooked for centuries. They cannot grow up to be the good women of tomorrow. As opposed to boys, girls are disadvantaged in many ways.

  • JOBS : some jobs are still for men
  • SPORTS: 90% Sports personnel are men, hence less income for women.
  • EDUCATION: As boys go to school, girls remain home being groomed to be house wives........
