Themba A boy called Hope is to journey across the nine provinces of South Africa. Not only will community members have a chance to enjoy an entertaining and uplifting feature film, they will also have a chance to discuss the issues raised in THEMBA such as HIV and Poverty and workshop those that are shared by their particular community.
DO Productions has joined forces with NGO’s. such as GOLD Peer Education, National Welfare Social Service & Development Forum, GCAP SA (Global Call to Action Against Poverty), and SCORE, who already work intensively in the communities where THEMBA will be screened. THEMBA will be integrated into their existing NGO programmes and also toured throughout South Africa.
Cinema for Peace who recently awarded THEMBA the Honorary Award 2011 (which is bestowed on a film or a person for outstanding commitment and dedication to peace building and human rights) is supporting this initiative by raising funds abroad in the hope that THEMBA reaches as many people in as many communities as is possible.

Some of the issues raised in THEMBA speak directly to the Millennium Development Goals that the social sector and governments throughout the world are trying to implement by 2015 such as
GOAL 1: Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger;
GOAL 2: Promote Gender Equality and Empower Women;
GOAL 3: Combat HIV/AIDS, Malaria and other diseases.

Themba – Trailer
Filmed on location against the stunning rural landscapes of the Eastern Cape, Themba tells the story of a local boy who triumphs against adversity and proves that with talent and determination dreams can come true.
Themba depicts the triumph of the human spirit and how belief in oneself and ones talent is tantamount to never giving up. Themba goes behind the pin-up posters of soccer stars and shows us what really makes for a hero.
