It is estimated that South Africa could have 5.7 million orphans by 2015. Five years ago Angela Larkan, then aged 22,founded Thanda and two years later, with the help of some colleagues, she launched Thanda After-School to support children in need. Determined to fight the destructive impact HIV/AIDS and poverty are having on the rural areas of South Africa, her project is today supporting 325 children daily and she is working to bring hope to thousands more through her model for community change. Thanda, a non-profit organization, supports future generations and communities in Africa by developing local, sustainable solutions to providing care for orphans and vulnerable children, HIV prevention and poverty alleviation. Thanda is defining a new approach to ending poverty and AIDS in rural communities, and developing a new model of orphan care that could be implemented throughout Africa.
