Born out of a need to provide pre-school and educational services to the impoverished community of Diepsloot.

 

The Mother Touch Academy opened its doors as an NPO
(Reg. No. – 070-896-NPO) on 3 August 2009 and has been growing ever since.

 

We started with 30 children in 2009 and we now have more than 120 children that range from babies to Grade R pupils. Some of our children are orphans.

 

School fees are paid per learner per month by parents that can afford it, however many parents can’t. The school relies on private and corporate donations for the remainder of the funding.

 

The school employs qualified teachers and uses the Jungle Tots methodology for teaching the children.

 

OUR VISION

To develop the children of Diepsloot and beyond

  • Physically
  • Intellectually
  • Spiritually
  • Emotionally
