Nonhlanhla dreams of helping children with special needs

Children with special needs

Nonhlanhla, an ECD student at Siyabonga Africa, dreams of opening her own Day Care Centre, catering for children with special needs. In the townships, there are precious few facilities where children with autism, learning difficulties and mild intellectual disability can learn at their own pace, with help and encouragement from specially trained teachers.

Please listen to Nonhlanhla’s story.


And then, if you can, please help this caring mom of two girls and two boys qualify.

Right now we have 30 students like her, who’ve completed their ECD NQF level 4 training … but they don’t have the money to pay the examination fee or to buy start up equipment for their new ECDs.

If you can donate R750 now, you’ll give someone like Nonhlanhla
the chance to sit the examination, and become fully qualified.
A contribution of R2 500 pays for an Edu Kit for one teacher –
with all the basics to start their own ECD.
It’s an investment, not only in a teacher’s professional development.
But also in every young life they will touch going forward.

Think back to your own childhood. Wasn’t there one a particular teacher who made a lasting impact on you or inspired you? Please pay it forward, by helping more teachers gain their qualification, and the equipment needed to provide children with quality early learning. Because, every child in South Africa – especially those with learning challenges – deserves that!

If you join forces with Siyabonga Africa now,
you’ll help make that happen … one new teacher at a time.
Thank you for helping us lay strong foundations for our children.
