Cause Profile

Ntataise – meaning to lead a young child by the hand – is an independent, not-for-profit organization founded in South Africa in 1980 to help women in disadvantaged rural communities gain the knowledge and skills needed to establish effective Early Childhood Development (ECD) programmes for children in their communities.

Today, 29 years later, through the network of independent ECD training organizations it has established, Ntataise has empowered over 10,000 women who in turn have reached approximately 500,000 children in some of South Africa’s most disadvantaged areas.

Ntataise is based in Viljoenskroon in the Free State and offers accredited ECD training programmes, courses, materials, assessment and monitoring services.

Ntataise’s development programmes work directly with pre-schools, children, parents and communities and address issuesaffecting babies and toddlers, parent and family involvement, health, nutrition, HIV/Aids, social welfare and financial management with a pivotal focus on the child.
