We take great effort to ensure that we cater to your questions, suggestions and feedback.


  • Who Are We?

    FCW bases it’s projects on Early Childhood Development because we believe that if we can intervene at a grass root level then we can make a difference

  • How We Started?

    We have been based in Kewtown since our inception 50 years ago. We started as just a small NGO but we are now at the forefront of our field.

  • Where Are We Going?

    We want to make ECD accessible to all children in rural areas throughout South Africa. And we can already see this vision unfolding.

A Word From Our Director

I would like to express a heartfelt thanks to the funders who help us to make a difference in the lives of young children, and would like to urge them to continue their support for our work which is becoming more attractive as an ECD strategy to reach more children who do not have access to services. We are also grateful that our work is being considered for publications and as learning briefs in order to benefit others in doing similar work. I also want to thank the FCW Board for its continued support; your time and dedication to the service of our organisation is invaluable and sincerely appreciated. On behalf of the FCW Board we also express our appreciation to the staff of FCW for their commitment and dedication under challenging circumstances in poor communities.
