We Are Starting Chance

We believe in giving children, living in poverty-stricken communities in the Western Cape, a starting chance in early childhood education!
100% DIRECT GIVING
Every rand donated online goes directly to our programmes to educate more children, support teachers/ field workers & build new schools. Learn the importance of our daily programme >
100% LOCAL TEACHERS
All of our teachers, principals and field workers are from South Africa, many of whom have very basic training. We deliver our Training Teachers in Townships (TTINT) workshops to them.
100% SUSTAINABLE
We appoint a field worker who goes into the townships to help teachers to implement what they have learnt from our TTINT workshops. Meet our field worker Nombulelo Dingiso >

“We’re all about winning the future for the children by creating opportunity – there is no shortage of ability when you look into the eyes of children in the poor communities around Cape Town. It is opportunity they lack”. Why township children? Watch our video >
