About Us

Our Mission

EduCare is for kids who do not have access to quality education. We provide on and offline educational resources through EduCare Packs. It’s not about Model-C students or Township students. In fact, it’s not even about kids who are in school or not. Our EduCare Packs consist of intentionally designed educational activities for kids to be kids and to introduce sustainable thinking, and tech skills based on real-world application. It’s about creating a safe space for kids to explore their passion and creativity.

Where #ThinkersPlay

When we realised that thousands of kids did not have access to quality education, we decided to step up and create a solution. We asked ourselves three questions: (1) How do we provide value, (2) convenience and (3) support to those who need it most? 


Sponsor an EduCare Pack

Before the year is up, we’d like to have made a difference to AT LEAST these 3,000 students across South Africa. We source, pack and deliver these EduCare packs ourselves and use local suppliers and volunteers to help do so. For us, it’s in the name. Thought Africa is in our DNA.
