Donate or Fund We empower qualified, passionate women to own and run successful high quality ECD centres in low-income communities through our proven social franchise model.

Leave a lasting legacy within education that impacts generations to come. 

What poor quality early learning education is doing to our country is not acceptable. Most ECD Centres in low-income communities don't have proper, safe facilities, the right equipment and resources, skilled and trained teachers, or structured ECD programmes to ensure quality learning.

Our comprehensive solution

Like you, we care deeply about ensuring that children from under-resourced communities receive 5 Star education in their most crucial years. We also understand that this quality must be sustainable, accessible and should also support job creation.

That’s why we offer a simple, proven solution to provide high-quality ECD education for children in low-income communities so that they can step out of poverty and thrive. Using social franchising, we help women run successful, professional educare centres with the children at heart.
