early childhood education

Singakwenza, meaning “we can do it!” In Isizulu, aims to build sustainable early childhood education programmes in economically disadvantaged communities. A charity based in Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa, we teach caregivers about the importance of young children learning through play, using resources made solely from recycling.

mentorship programme

Singakwenza trainers mentor crèche caregivers in their own crèches one day a week, every week, for a minimum of two years. They teach each caregiver how to educate her children using resources made from recycling and the significance of each activity in terms of Early Childhood Development. Their role is to walk alongside these crèche teachers, guiding and encouraging them towards a daily fun, structured, educational programme, so that when we leave, the programme will continue without us.

waste 2 toys workshops

We teach parents, educators and community workers how to make their own toys and teaching materials using household packaging that is usually thrown away, with the focus on the importance of learning through play. Each workshop covers a different area of learning, and they are run in areas throughout South Africa and other countries where access to resources is limited.
