Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” 

Robert F. Kennedy

Yale School of Public Health Professor Rafael Pérez-Escamilla has a message for low- and moderate-income countries: if you want to grow your economy and uplift your people, put money into early childhood development.

The Philile Foundation has an amazing vision for South Africa where every child has access to quality pre-school education. Play-based learning develops the fundamentals of mathematics, language concepts, innovation, problem-solving and creativity. The Foundation has an integrated and holistic approach to education, which includes wellness, nutrition, sport, environmental awareness, entrepreneurship and the personal development of each child.

Hundred’s of children have donned their Philile graduation gowns and stood proudly as they received their school readiness certificate and entered the world of primary education as confident, happy, disciplined, school-ready children. Your support will help us to keep doing what we love doing – setting a foundation for lifelong learning.
