Donate to iThemba Trust Projects


The infrastructure and buildings at Orange Grove Schools, and for other iThemba Projects, have increased significantly in the last two years thanks to generous donor funding.

Orange Grove Schools have recently acquired a beautiful new staff room and kitchen/catering facility overlooking the tennis courts with a view of the distant thornveld-covered mountains.

We have also recently completed separate boys and girls ablution blocks, complete with toilets and showers, as well as a dedicated science and biology lab that also doubles as an art room.

In other Orange Grove Projects, work is currently underway on a wood-framed log cabin for Orange Grove Outdoor Adventures, which will provide dormitory accommodation for the colder winter months.

In the grounds of the Story, building has started on wood-framed consulting rooms that will form the basis of a wellness clinic that will offer medical care to the community.
