GROWING UP IN AN AFRICAN TOWNSHIP IS HARD

25% of children currently suffer from prolonged lack of nutrition
60% of children do not currently attend any form of nursery or ECD
80% of adults are unemployed
Children are left underdeveloped and vulnerable, and the cycle of inequality they were born into continues…

“Our mantra of ‘support, act, learn and adapt’ never seemed more pertinent.”
