Thembalethu is a township on the Garden Route and is situated south of George, along the N2 and near Pacaltsdorp. The name "Thembalethu" is Xhosa and means "Our Hope".

Thembalethu is a poor township with many social ills. Two of the biggest challenges that residents in the community face are alcohol abuse and unemployment.

Other challenges that residents face include:

  • Housing.
  • Parks for children to play in.
  • Sports facilities.
  • More visibility of the police.

Most government services that can alleviate these problems are now available and can be accessed online, which is easy and less time-consuming.

However, most residents in Thembalethu are employed in security services, agriculture, construction, domestic work, garden work, and retail and don’t have easy, affordable access to online services.

The Western Cape Government introduced the eCentre programme to help residents in rural communities access information and communication technology (ICT) easily, free of charge.

At the Thembalethu WCG eCentre, visitors can expect exceptional service from staff who’ll help them connect to and access government services and online communities worldwide by providing access to e-mail, and the internet.

eCentres provide a range of services, including:

  • Free Internet Access
  • Email Access and assistance to create emails
  • Online Job searches and applications
  • Online University Applications
  • Free Printing of a maximum of 10 pages per day
  • Basic Informal Computer Course Training
  • E-learner Online Computer Course Training
  • International Computer Digital Literacy (ICDL) Computer Course Training

Residents of Thembalethu who are looking for a place to receive free computer training and free internet access to sign up for government services, start businesses or register with educational institutions can visit the Thembalethu WCG eCentre at the Thembalethu Thusong Centre in Sandkraal Road.
