Abahambi



Abahambi (Singular = Mhambi) are the building blocks of our non-centre based ECD programme

- Translated from Zulu, this word means "those who walk/go".
- Trained ECD practitioners
- Visit the homes of children from the community they live in
- Facilitate play groups for children who are not enrolled in ECD centres
- Chosen by the community committee to work with their children
- Have a basic resource kit
- Supplement their kit from the community Toy Library
- Ensure a variety of age-appropriate resources and equipment which ensures ongoing stimulation and participation
- Run parenting workshops for caregivers in their communities




This programme is currently running in four of our communities: Mbuba, Matimatolo , Eshane and Njengabantu

The Abahambi programme is currently supported by the Jim Joel Fund, FNB, and Kinderfonds Mamas. We are grateful for their continued partnership.
