Partnership Opportunities

The Coronavirus Pandemic has put all of us on new paths of learning – balancing our lives between what we know from the past and what we need to implement for the present and future.  Covid-19 has literally affected families, individuals, businesses, communities – THE WORLD.  It has irrevocably changed the way in which we all function, no less so, as a Non-Profit Organisation.

Immediate Changes

At Thárros we have restructured our operational system and gone back to basics while we get to grips with innovative ways of fundraising, being cost efficient and still maintaining excellence in nurturing our children.  We are blessed to have good people supporting us from time to time, sharing food parcels, donating towards requests, and partaking in virtual fundraising initiatives.  We have managed to maintain 60% of our team, although we are on short time, and have had to reduce the number of children we can presently accommodate to 10.

Yet our vision is unfaltering, and we remain convinced that Thárros is intended to grow and stand strong.

Future Outlook

As an NPO directly involved in the protection of children, Thárros needs to be readily available for the almost certain aftermath of the effects of the Coronavirus on our communities.  We have experienced a big drop in our regular donor pool due to the economic crisis on businesses and individuals, leaving us vulnerable in our ability to provide our much-needed services.  We thus iterate that your support and assistance is imperative to our existence; we cherish whatever form of help you can provide.

Monthly stop orders allow us to work with certainty towards our goals.

R20 donations add up and assist with monthly expenses.  R50 equals a pocket of potatoes.

R500 towards Baby C’s nappies and formula or R1000 towards a carer’s salary.  Every bit counts.
