Every child a healthy, productive adult.
Far more than a charity project, The Thoughtful Path is a way of life, a new way of thinking, and a fresh look at the way charities work with communities. It is our flagship project, designed to engage an entire community and enable its most vulnerable children to grow into healthy, productive adults.
The Thoughtful Path is constructed on a set of VALUES that place children first, along with a belief that for us to do something for people that they could do for themselves, is to do them harm, by eroding their capacity to act for themselves. We work with communities, giving them a hand up and never a handout.
The Thoughtful Path concept is being demonstrated in Munsieville, said to be South Africa’s oldest undeveloped township, and the childhood home of our Patron, Desmond Tutu. Set up in 2010, the ten-year project is operated by three community-based action 'hubs' with the aim of establishing an influential and sustainable model of excellence in comprehensive support for orphans and other vulnerable children.
