Thembalethu Home Based Care (THBC), is a respected community-based organisation operating near the Swaziland border in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa.  Much of this region’s population has emigrated from Swaziland and many settled here during the Mozambican civil war.   Although their children may have been born in South Africa, 80% have no identity document or birth certificate and therefore cannot access government grants for education and social services.
