Uplifting communities through play

Globally, more than 200 million children under the age of 5 fail to reach their potential in cognitive development because of poverty, poor health, nutrition, and lack of early stimulation.

Learn to Play harnesses the power of play to provide high quality and culturally relevant early childhood education. We approach early childhood development at a child, caregiver and community level and work with mothers as the key change-agents in our communities, creating a sustainable framework for development. Easily scalable and replicable in a variety of contexts, our model results in improved school readiness and holistic wellbeing for every child and their family. Learn to Play is determined to build a brighter Botswana by uplifting one vibrant village at a time.

“We need to transform the way the world cares for, educates & protects young children. For us this is more than a job; we’re pioneering programmes that create vibrant villages on the African continent.”
