Stellumthombo aims to cultivate hope in everybody excluded from opportunities and those who need access to personal and community development in the Stellenbosch area.

We aim to achieve this through a variety of programmes that focus on every phase of a person’s life. The plan is to support a person through several strategic programmes from conception until they enter the job market with some marketable skill. By doing this, we hope to create a platform where a person has access to opportunities, which will enable them to flourish as an individual.


Early Childhood Development

Changing the trajectory of children’s futures through strategic interventions in the first 1000 days

Literacy Programme

Helping children reach their academic potential through fun, interactive literacy programmes.                                                    

Masandise Study Aid

Changing lives by giving young adults the necessary skills and support to succeed as first generation students.
