Our Projects - Other DoMore Projects


Every year, the DO MORE FOUNDATION facilitates two massive annual campaigns that harnesses the power of collective action for good. In July each year, we work with DO MORE Hero’s across the country to host Mandela Day events at their local ECD Centres. It is during these events that volunteers gather to help out the centre with small infrastructural upgrades, activities with the children and general donations that the team have put together that include playful resources and games. This is followed by our World Food Day campaign every October where we seek to raise awareness around humanitarian hunger and malnutrition. Working together with our DO MORE Hero’s, fellow businesses, and non-profit organisations. It is during these events that we seek to implement our ECD Nutrition Hub concept through the provision of food gardens at ECD centres and nutrition training and resources to support ECD staff in providing young children with healthy meals that build their body and brains. If you would like to join one of our annual campaigns, either as a business or volunteer, please contact us and we will keep you in the loop!


Our Foundation is a proud member of Real Reform for Early Childhood Development (#RR4ECD) - a democratic movement advocating for holistic, well-funded, inclusive and quality early childhood development services for all children. #RR4ECD’s focus is to ensure an enabling legal, policy and regulatory environment for the provision and expansion of ECD services. Our specific role as the DO MORE FOUNDATION in this movement has been to mobilise and support our ECD colleagues (being ECD principals and practitioners in the community in which we work) and provide them with a platform for debate and discussion.

A key reason for our involvement to this end is because of the close relationships we hold with ECD stakeholders “on the ground” and the platforms, such as a Young Child Forums, that we make available for important discussions at local level. During these opportunities for engagement, we make it easy for our ECD stakeholders to understand the critical policy and legal issues that underpin the way they work. This also involves providing them with the tool to have a strong unified voice so they can make their demands to government at all levels. This is about empowering them and giving them the opportunity to make their voices heard in a way that government will listen. Access to legal and policy experts through #RR4ECD help construct these messages in a way that make sense for government at all levels.
