About Us

The word Tumelo means "Faith", Tumelo Home was established in April 1996 by Dr Moses Thindisa and his late wife Mrs Orina Thindisa. The Home is located in Ivory Park Ext 5 in Midrand. Tumelo Home is a Non-Profit Organization that has been registered with the Department of Social Development since 2002. Tumelo Home focuses on residential and day care for the mentally and physically disabled children, this includes daily bathing, feeding, dressing and also provides the children with stimulation programs to empower them.

The Home started as a day care centre but later on turned into a 24hr operational centre, reason being that parents would bring their children using false addresses and details with the intention of not coming back to collect them. The centre currently accommodates 32 children, in which, approximately 70% of the them are either orphaned, abandoned, abused, or come from a poor background.
