We Are Starting Chance
We believe that by giving our township children, parents and teachers a starting chance on their educational journey, we will help to make a better future for all in South Africa. More than 40% of children, under the age of five, living in the Western Cape, don’t have access to Early Childhood Development facilities. Learn more >
The Starting Chance 100% Promise
We are a non-profit organisation and in order to continue the work we are doing in the Mfuleni township, we are reliant on donations and support from our partners, donors and friends of Starting Chance.
100% DIRECT GIVING
Every rand donated online goes directly to our programmes to educate more children, support teachers, field workers and build new schools.
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.
We appoint a field worker who goes into the townships to help teachers to implement what they have learnt from our Training Teachers in Townships (TTINT) workshops.
The Starting Chance Programme
We offer a model that addresses the multiple needs of an Early Childhood Development (ECD) centre.
