EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES THROUGH

PLAY

Community Initiated Playgroups that provide the foundation for

early childhood intervention through sustainable play in African outdoors.

LEARN TO PLAY, ITHUTE GO TSHAMEKA

More than 200 million children under the age of 5 fail to reach their potential in cognitive development. Poverty, poor health and nutrition, as well as the lack of early stimulation holds these children back. But early years care should not be a luxury.

 

Learn To Play, or Ithute Go Tshameka in Setswana, enables mothers in vulnerable communities to establish child-centred, developmentally-appropriate, and culturally-relevant playgroups.

 

Through our curriculum, training, interventions, and a specially-designed ‘playgroup in a box’, they get the skills and resources they need to teach the children of their community, establishing a bridge between their community life and formal education.

If you educate a woman, you educate a whole nation.
