Themba is a Swedish Non Governmental Organisation constituted by swedes originating from Sweden and Africa. Every year a million young men and women leave family and friends in Africa to go and seek an income in Europe. An income that will benefit all these that were left behind, people that oftenly have invested in sending the young people to Europe. Sadly, far from everyone reach the european continent but approximately 5000 out of those who manage to cross waters and borders will sooner or later end up in Sweden, every year. Once in Sweden most of them will find that costs of living are very high and even if you are lucky enough to find and get a job most of the earned money will be used for living expenses. There will be nothing or very little left to support the family back home. Despite this most africans send the little they have left to their families. Themba acknowledges the major efforts made by many african immigrants and wants to assist them in their efforts to develop their home countries. Themba does this through sharing projectmanaging skills and by offering a channel to the financial resources available in Sweden for development projects.
