Our Story

How we got started…

It all started with the love of a father for a daughter with special needs. He utilised his own skills to teach her to reach her full potential, using physical literacy as a means to improve his daughter’s mobility. His insights with his own little girl translated into a business. In turn, this business grew into an NPO that gives back to children like this one small child and now many others can benefit from what father and daughter learned together. 

Where we are today…

We see the difference the physical literacy programme makes to the lives of these children. We see them light up, ignited and motivated by their new found passion for activity and action, and when they achieve movement milestones that boost their self-esteem.

Children are transformed. South Africa can be transformed.
