Here is an example of just how much $5USD can help. Huge difference. No cost.

A good educational toy for an under resourced pre-school.

Welcome to the online home of Flying Children
We are dedicated to improving the quality of care available to pre-school children in South Africa's disadvantaged areas.
Too many children are brought up by single parents, ill or dying parents, foster parents, elderly relatives, teenage mothers, or older brothers or sisters. Child care, both in children’s centres and at home, is often inadequate and even emotionally and educationally damaging. This has the potential to create a damaging legacy for the child that is almost impossible to eradicate, before he or she has even started school.
Enter the Flying Children Programme!
Working with 'clusters' of around five schools, our programme offers makeovers that achieve a basic quality of facilities. We conduct intense teaching, mentoring and supervision with the teachers, and then build services in aftercare, parenting training and support for orphans and vulnerable children at "hub" schools.

Donations used for upgrading under-resourced pre-schools (veranda's playrooms, play materials) and training women with little formal education for three years so that they can run a good pre-school programme and earn a modest income.

The centres can be visited on week mornings between 9am and 12pm except during December and the 1st 2 weeks of January. They are situated in the West rand of Gauteng and it takes about an hour to drive there from the centre of Johannesburg. Transport can be arranged.Please contact Lindy at [email protected] if you are interested in arranging a visit.

What To Bring

Toys suitable for the 0-6 year olds (puzzles 2pc-35pc, educational games, fantasy toys, toy animals, cars, balls...)are greatly appreciated. Fruit is always a special treat.
