The Themba Development Project is a Canadian Non-Profit Organization which 
works to assist the struggling Xhosa tribe of South Africa.  Our work 
focuses on providing resources, tools and knowledge to the community of Zone 
4-Thembalethu. Our focus is to improve access to food, minimize poverty, 
encourage education and develop short and long term solutions to the food 
crisis facing the Xhosa people.

Our Founder, Catherine E. Robar, is a 2009 nominee for the National Canadian 
Humanitarian Award known as the "Me to We" Award. Ms. Robar works closely 
with the community members of Zone 4-Thembalethu so that the Xhosa culture 
and traditions are respected, encouraged and preserved.
