What We Do

Our objective is to establish early childhood development centers (pre-schools) in disadvantaged communities, running programs that are aimed at the physical, cognitive, emotional, spiritual and social development of children. We do this through the support of sponsors and by employing and training teachers from the local communities.

Philile was founded in 2008 by Kaleb Willems with support from GodFirst Church. The first Philile pre-school was opened in Johannesburg’s inner city on the border of Hillbrow and Braamfontein. In March 2010 our second site was opened in Johannesburg’s Northern township of Diepsloot. Soon to come is Philile’s third pre-school located in the heart of Cosmo City.
