Stellumthombo aims to cultivate hope through education

We want to give every child access to excellent early childhood development so that they meet their developmental goals, and have the best possible chance to make a success of their school career. 

What we do…

ECD Training

Stellumthombo provides ECD management and facilitators training to provide them with the necessary skills to best support the children in their programmes. 

Our training has two main focus areas.

Business management training provides ECD management with the skills to ensure that their ECD centre is financially sustainable.

Education training provides the facilitators with up to date knowledge about child development and how to facilitate learning that strategically addresses the developmental areas of a child. 

Focus on Literacy

Stellumthombo is an official partner of WordWorks, through which we focus on literacy to unlock the future of at-risk children in communities around Stellenbosch.

In our nine years of working with at-risk children in the Cloetesville area, we have identified literacy as one of the main factors contributing to school drop out before learners finish primary school. 

We, therefore, partnered with WordWorks to facilitate literacy interventions sessions in the communities around Stellenbosch.

Masandise Study Aid

We provide mentorship and support to first-generation.

Many first-generation students are overwhelmed and unequipped to make a success of their tertiary studies. Masandise aims to provide the necessary support to help these students overcome some hurdles that might get in their way.

History (our story so far) To understand how we got from an organisation primarily focussing on homelessness to an organisation concentrating on ECD, one needs to understand the learnings we had since Straatlig was founded in 2004. Straatlig was founded by a student...
