Full Tummy Fund
Category: Education, Kids
The Full Tummy Fund is a programme of the Spur Foundation and the vehicle used to invest in educational development and nutritional programmes.
Although experts agree that the situation for South African children between the ages of 0 and six has improved since 1994, the early childhood development (ECD) sector still faces significant challenges, including institutional capacity – few well-trained ECD staff and little in the line of effective instruction programmes, infrastructure and facility gaps funding and poor nutrition.
Investing in early childhood development is known to be one of the most effective means of eradicating poverty. It is for this reason our developmental focus remains strongly on the first 2 000 days, with particular emphasis on early childhood development and nutrition for children from disadvantaged communities up to the age of six. We know that you can’t teach a hungry child, and during these first, formative years, the essential building blocks for brain and body development are laid.
100% of funds donated to the Full Tummy Fund will go directly to one of our deserving beneficiaries.
