Adult education, empowering women and Early Childhood Development (ECD) are crucial to the upliftment and transformation of rural and under-developed communities - and Masikhule is dedicated to these strategic areas.

 

Masikhule, a registered Non-Profit (NPO) and Public Benefit Organisation (PBO), founded in the Helderberg area of the Western Cape in 2005 by Léanne Keet, an Occupational Therapist, trains daycare and pre-school teachers and unemployed women from disadvantaged communities in ECD, providing essential skills that enable them to effectively educate and nurture pre-school children in their communities, and provide employment opportunities.

WHAT'S NEW

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.

It is not only the children who  are growing and developing, but the women too.

   learning skills.
