Our Programme

Nanga Vhutshilo provides high-quality early development curriculum and accompanying programs to children in one of Soweto’s most vulnerable communities. At Nanga, we believe that struggling communities will progress only when their most vulnerable children –those severely impacted by poverty, disease, or poor family circumstances– are able to succeed. We use a sophisticated, theory-based approach to make this happen.

Nanga children are better prepared to succeed in school.

At Nanga, we’re all about getting results. We are constantly gathering feedback about each aspect of our programme, and we are constantly improving our services in order to make them as effective as possible.

As children progress through our Development Centre and enter the school system, we continuously monitor their learning progress, physical health, and overall well-being.

Overwhelmingly, our data shows that involvement with Nanga improves children’s linguistic and cognitive abilities, makes them healthier, and enables them to excel in the classroom.
