You can join an entire community of changemakers who are uplifting the lives of young children and building a brighter Botswana for all of us.

There is an urgent need to help families and children in Botswana. Since the onset of the pandemic, we have noticed an increasing number of children exposed to alcohol abuse, violence, and toxic stress. Botswana also has one of the highest rates of child malnutrition in the world. You can change these statistics and support families and communities to become vibrant villages for children to play, learn and thrive.



All our products are inspired by beautiful Botswana and made sustainably for you and your child to play mindfully at home.
