WHO WE ARE
We are a proudly South African independent non-profit organisation focused on “creating better tomorrows for the young children” in our country. The values of the Foundation play an important role in shaping the culture and key priorities of the work we do. These values include authenticity, partnerships, entrepreneurship and sustainability.
WHY EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT?
- 90% of brain development occurs before age 5 This is why we focus specifically on children from birth to age 5.
- Improves Primary School Readiness And in turn high school completion and tertiary study enrolment.
- Reduces Crime And the reliance on social services in later life.
- Reduces Inequality By nurturing critical thinkers and problem solvers from an early age, ultimately creating a skilled workforce and stronger economy.
At the DO MORE FOUNDATION, we have a network of over 260 partners across the private public and non-profit sector. By collaborating with the public, private and non-profit sector, we are able to identify and find solutions that lead to sustainable and impactful change. These are just a few of our platinum partners that fund substantial portions of our initiatives.
