Every donation helps Play Africa improve lives by empowering children with 21st-century skills, creating a new generation to build Africa's future. It offers high-quality early childhood development (ECD) and primary school education, with a focus on bringing new skills to children who need them most: children in underserved communities and children with disabilities.
Play Africa supporters are people who believe that every child has a right to high-quality education. Every child is curious and capable, and has a deep desire to be valued. Supporters of Play Africa enable playful learning experiences that bridge divides and inspire children to create, discover and connect.
By donating to Play Africa, you enable us to bridge opportunity gaps, offering children learning experiences that can change their lives. Your donation helps children discover their innate potential to be a thinker, scientist, creator inventor and innovator.
Play Africa is located inside the Old Fort at Constitution Hill in Johannesburg, just metres from the cell where Nelson Mandela was once incarcerated. We transform this apartheid-era prison from a site of humiliation, oppression and fear into a site of joyful discovery and learning. Not every child can come to us, so our children's museum also creates pop-up experiences in communities themselves -- school halls, parks, community centres and inner city rooftops.
100% of your donation will support our programmes for disadvantaged children.
