Umthombo’s Vision is to provide a progressive and recognized best practice model that offers alternatives to street life.
- Outreach: Indentifying children on the streets and developing a relationship of trust with them.
- Reintegration and Aftercare: Umthombo’s Safespace leads children towards reintegration into society. If
family reintegration is possible, Umthombo works with both the families and the children to ensure that the process is smooth and in the best interest of the child. Children are also back into school system. They are equipped for this and monitored. Children who have been reintegrated remain in Umthombo’s Aftercare programme and we supply the schooling needs for as long as there is a need. We currently have over 30 children in the Aftercare Programme that are studying. They are between the age of 10 and 18.
