3L Development is operational since 1998 and registered as a NPO in 2001. In 2015, the name was changed from Thabiso NGO to 3L Development as the organisation believes everyone should Live Life in Light.
A paradigm shift was made, to deter focus from the broad community developmental approach and completely focus on three specific areas, namely; Socio-Economic Empowerment – 3L Development strives to uplift and empower underprivileged communities.
Early Learning- The fundamental key to future growth is education.
Skills Development – The organisation assists in affirming a place and position as an SA citizen.
The organisation manages a well-developed Early Learning program. Two community service centres are established in Barkly West and Warrenton, Northern Cape. 3L Development was appointed as the implementation agent for the governmental project: Community Work Program (CWP) which provides the participants with freedom from poverty.
For the past 18 years, 3L Development has specialized in: Home Based Care, Governance & Transformation, Socio-economic programs, Water related projects, Project Management and Training related projects.
