Masikhule’s mission is to ensure that all children living in marginalised communities of the Helderberg and surrounding rural areas attend Early Childhood Development Facilities that are registered and provide a holistic child development and stimulation program, so that these children may enter formal schooling with a good foundation of knowledge, maturity and independence.

The three main functions of Masikhule are:

to provide training in Early Childhood Development for pre-school and crèche staff, primary caregivers (including mothers) and unemployed women;

to develop, support and mentor pre-schools and crèches;

to provide unemployed women with the opportunity to gain practical skills in Early Childhood Development and stimulation. This makes it possible for them to find employment as domestic workers looking after their employer’s young children in the home, as well as at existing ECD centres.

Masikhule makes a positive contribution to the upliftment of communities through skills training, mentorship and capacity building in the field of Early Childhood Development.

The name Masikhule means
‘Let us Grow’ in isiXhosa.
