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.


For an annual contribution you ‘ll be able to choose an art piece from a hand-picked collection of South African artists.

Every cent makes a difference!
