Play-with-a-Purpose Educational Trust is trading as Preschools 4 Africa. Preschools 4 Africa has its roots in the Play-with-a-Purpose educational programme which was founded in 1991. Registered as an Educational Trust in 2002. The Play-with-a-Purpose Trust is a South African non-profit organisation that has had over 25 years of Community Development and Early Childhood Development experience. We currently mentor over 70 preschools with another 500 affiliated preschools that have benefited from our training throughout South Africa and Zambia as well in the United Kingdom, Zimbabwe, Mauritius, Australia, Ghana, Malaysia, Singapore, Nigeria, United States and Botswana.
Preschools 4 Africa aims to assist young children in their quest to obtain quality and relevant early childhood education in order to ensure that they are in a position to ultimately be gainfully employed and become global citizens. Research indicates that a child that does not receive the correct education in the first five years has a 70% chance of being arrested for a violent crime and has less than a 30% chance of entering tertiary education. We aim to be part of the change in uplifting education in the fight against crime.
