  • The project has helped Semela to better communicate with its existing supporters and stakeholders.

Alignment with Semela's mission

Semela's mission is to help uplift early learning centres caring for children from disadvantaged backgrounds. The new Semela website helps to achieve this mission by:

  • Raising awareness of Semela's work and the importance of early childhood development.
  • Making it easy for people to support Semela's mission by donating online.
  • Providing information and resources to early learning centres in the Western Cape of South Africa.

Key insight:

Early childhood development (“ECD”) refers to the physical, psychological, cognitive and social development that a child experiences between birth and school-going age. Semela focusses efforts on ECD as for many children in South Africa, the experiences that they have in their first five years of life place them at a significant disadvantage at the point of entry into school.
