We support the health and development of vulnerable children living in children’s homes in South Africa.
Our focus is on developmental therapy and medical services to babies and children aged 0 – 6 years old.


Welcome to Thusanani

Thusanani was founded in 2002 to contribute towards improving the lives and futures of orphaned and vulnerable children. Thusanani is the only multi-disciplinary non profit organisation in South Africa providing therapeutic medical services and training for the optimal development of orphaned and vulnerable children.

We provide a dedicated therapeutic service to promote optimal development of children aged 0 – 6 years old.

Our vision is to enhance the future of orphaned and vulnerable children by creating stimulating environments. Children who are functioning at an age appropriate level will have a stronger start in life and will cope better at school. Promoting normal development has been shown to increase a child’s chances of being adopted.

We are grateful for your interest and support
