Our commitment extends beyond academics to encompass emotional, social, and physical development, fostering resilience and self-esteem. Through tailored educational curricula, innovative play-based learning, and comprehensive health initiatives, we aim to empower each child to thrive despite adversity.
We train teachers to provide quality early childhood development education. We also equip preschools with learning materials, students with uniforms, transport and after school care and provide crèche services which allow child carers to continue their education.
We have five mobile clinics providing prevention and treatment services that can access remote communities. Our teams provide vaccinations, Road to Health Card check-ups, growth monitoring, nutritional support and emergency food parcels for families who are in need.
Daily meals are provided at our early childhood centres which feed over 6,000 children. It is often their only meal of the day. As well as delivering emergency food parcels to households our food garden training and provision of materials at all of our centres helps to ensure that communities have access to nutritious vegetables.
Young girls like Lerato are provided with food, school uniforms, psycho-social support, career guidance, and more.
