About our work

A large amount of young children in South Africa’s townships does not receive preschool support. We empower under-resourced daycare centres and improve educational standards for the children.

Matchbox is a Cape Town based non-profit organisation aiming to improve the quality of life and learning for young children living in South Africa’s underprivileged township communities.
