South Africa has three priorities: “Education, Education, Education.”
-Nelson Mandela

Our mission is to fund the training and resources for preschool education, enabling South African children below the poverty line to succeed in school and in life.

How You Can Help

Individuals, companies, organizations, and churches can donate:

$10 funds one educational toy
$75 funds one Play and Learn (PAL) kit of seven educational toys and resources
$750 funds ten different PAL kits for four months of curriculum. Toy Libraries need multiple sets.

$7,500 provides seed funding for a new Preschool hub to include a robust Toy Library and training center. ASAP helps caregivers who currently offer daycare in overcrowded apartments access mentoring and resources. Many will get certified in Early Childhood Education as they borrow educational toys, follow a curriculum, and learn to track the critical developmental milestones of preschoolers. Through ASAP, countless children who have never held a toy before can now learn through play.
