INTRODUCING LEARN TO PLAY

More than 200 million children under the age of 5 fail to reach their potential in cognitive development.

The villages within Botswana that Ithute go Tshameka is hoping to reach are extremely impoverished. Most of their children don’t have exposure to any sort of early childhood education.

The Learn To Play curriculum enables mothers to establish Community Initiated Playgroups. These Playgroups are child-centred, age-appropriate and culturally relevant to form a bridge between children’s community life and formal education.

We’re teaching how to provide early years education in a way that creates nurturing communities that are safe, fun and sustainable. The children and mamapreneurs will be better equipped for the rest of their lives as a result of our intervention, breaking the cycle of poverty and lack of opportunity.

Our Facilitators are 100% Batswana women experienced and qualified in Early Childhood Development (ECD) enabling our entire programme to be deliverable in both English and Setswana.

CHILDREN

Enable children 18 months – 6 years to access quality early childhood interventions which include a curriculum designed for play, learning and holistic wellbeing.

MAMAPRENEURS

Build self-esteem in women by training mamapreneurs selected by the community in ECD, child health, protection, nutrition, toy and resource making, financial literacy, spoken English and more.

COMMUNITY

Encourage grandmothers, fathers, social and health workers to get involved; provide a sustainable and scalable low-cost programme that is owned by the community.

OUR PLAY RANGERS

Inspired by Botswana, safari and conservation, our team is known as Play Rangers, guiding children through early childhood development using a fun, safe and nurturing approach.
