We need YOUR help to equip a Winelands school with world-class Montessori equipment

We are asking for contributions to help us equip a Wineland's child care center with world-class Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) learning materials and equipment. Providing these resources will enable more than 100 currently vulnerable children access educational opportunities that will change the course of their lives. 

We are running our campaign through January 31, 2017. 

For more information on the work of the Indaba Education Fund, please visit www.indabaeducationfund.org 


60% of children under the age of 4 do not have access to any form of early childhood development programs and 50% of children attending school in South Africa will not graduate high school.*

By giving young children a solid foundation of learning, they are statistically more likely to stay in school, achieve academic success, and live happier, healthier lives. They also are less likely to repeat a grade, drop out of school, or engage in criminal activities.

The Indaba Education Fund is doing transformational work that is not only life-changing for this generation, but has the potential to impact society as a whole.
