Our Journey

Initially Thusanani operated on a voluntary basis with therapists working out of their cars. In September 2006, we moved into the Children’s Memorial Institute (CMI) on the Braamfontein Parktown border. This allowed us to set up an office base while therapists still practiced within various children’s homes in Gauteng.

During 2012 we employed a Speech Therapist and at the start of 2013, we expanded to include a Pediatrician.

In April 2014, we decided to offer all of our services at CMI where we coordinated our core functions: a Pediatric Medical Clinic; Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy. This enabled our offering to be more effective and efficient.

We have forged close working relationships with other non profit organisations enabling us to offer comprehensive pediatric therapy services.

We now offer a blended approach by operating from CMI - providing therapy and training, and incorporating our offering to spending time at the children’s homes.

We strive to provide a holistic service to the children and the homes that we serve.
