Huge thanks to Sikhula Sonke Early Childhood Development for supporting this important cause!
“I think the most important thing to do when going to a new place, especially one with such a complex history as South Africa, is to keep an open mind and immerse yourself in the culture, rather than shying away from things that are unfamiliar or trying to put a band-aid on issues that have existed for centuries. Real change can only happen if you try to understand the underlying issues, and also understand that those issues may not be the same as the ones you’re used to dealing with.”

We caught up with people-oriented, culture-embracing, and past iKapa intern, Stephanie Spera.
We love some of the spot-on advice she gave to anyone looking to do an internship through iKapa Impact ☝🏼👏🏼👌🏼

Stephanie got two Masters Degrees, one in Public Administration and another in International Relations at Syracuse University, New York. It was during her International Relations degree that she came over to Cape Town to do her internship through iKapa Impact. She currently lives in Phoenix, Arizona working as a State Budget Analyst 👩🏻‍🎓👩🏻‍💻

During her internship in Cape Town, she really embraced the experience with open arms! From taking the cable car up Table Mountain to watching a Springbok Rugby match at Newlands Stadium and even having some of the most interesting traditional African food, Steph immersed herself fully! 🚡⛰🏉🇿🇦🐛🍴

Follow this link to read more about Steph’s incredible experiences in Cape Town and the lasting work that she did through the projects she was involved in 🙌🏼

Reconciliation Day fosters unity and reconciliation - and what better cause to unify around is supporting, protecting and caring for our children? Our latest newsletter celebrates fathers spending time with their children, children learning and growing, caregivers, parents and teachers supported, even high schoolers caring about pre-primary schoolers. As we end this year, our hearts are full.

Famsa, in partnership with Sikhula Sonke, hosted an event for our caregivers about the "16 days of activism for no violence against women and children" campaign. Discussions were about Gender Based Violence and other relevant issues to our Khayelitsha communities.

Thank you Wynberg Girls' High School for generously putting together food parcels for families in Khayelitsha before school closed for 2022. We are very grateful for this partnership and wish staff and teachers a rest- and joy-filled festive season and holidays.


These are great activities for the holidays and a surprising side benefit - they calm wild kids down because of the effect of touch! Try them out.

"💪Proprioception is our muscle and joint sense, it tells us where your body is in space. Proprioceptive input is any activity that provides deep pressure to your muscles and joints and/or provides resistance through pushing and pulling activities.

🌟Proprioceptive input is very calming and regulating, it gives a sense of control to recognize your body sensations. These activities are useful to implement throughout the day to encourage a regulated nervous system.

➡️Many of these activities are also referred to as “heavy work”.

🗣Every child will respond to these activities differently, try them out and see which ones work best for your child. Don’t forget to join in, these are great for you too!

Here they are:

1. 🌮Blanket Roll-So many variations can be made with this. Roll your child up tightly in a blanket pretend they are a taco, burrito, caterpillar, present, etc.

2. 🌉Pillow Crawls-Lay some pillows across the floor and have your child crawl across pretending you are crossing a bridge

3. 🦀Animal Walks-Pretend to be various animals (bear, crab, frog, rabbit, dog, alligator, etc.)

4. 🧺Laundry Basket Push-Push a laundry basket across the floor filled with clothes, stuffed animals, toys, or a sibling!

5. 👩🏼‍🍳Baking-Mix, roll, scoop, etc., when baking

6. 🧼Cleaning-Give your child a spray bottle with vinegar and clean the windows, surfaces, or appliances (for younger children just use water)

7. 🥖Kneading Dough-Play with play-doh, make bread, tortillas, or pizza doh

8. 🧹Mopping/Sweeping/Vacuuming-so much good heavy work here!

9. ✨Pillow Squishes-Have your child lie on the floor and give them pillow squishes on the body. Then see if they can crawl out.

10. 🦵Rolling Pin Body Rolls-Roll a rolling pin on each other's body. To make it softer you can duct tape a towel around it.

11. 🏃🏽‍♀️Pillow Crashing-Jump and crash into a pile of pillows

12. 🥨Smoothie & Crunchy/Chewy Snacks-Drink a smoothie with a straw or eat a crunchy or chewy snack."

A highlight at the end of every year is the final outing for our Emthonjeni Outreach programme children. This year we took the children to Muizenberg's public swimming pools on a lovely summer's day. There was much splashing and fun, a picnic lunch and as we returned to Khayelitsha, lots of yawning and tired smiling faces. Outings like these expose children to new experiences, widen their worlds and give them opportunities to learn more about the city in which they live.
Thank you to our team and helpers for making this a day to remember.


It's our end of year beach outing for the Emthonjeni outreach programme children today. Pics to follow...

A big shout out to Gcogco Clothing Studio who made Graduation Day extra special for these 3 young girls from our Emthonjeni outreach programme. Gcogco designed these beautiful dresses at her design studio and donated them to the girls.

Thank you for showing these lovely young ladies so much love!

It's 'the most wonderful time of the year'! Graduations happened this morning for children from the outreach programmes and some of the ECD centres. Well done to the children! Thank you to the teachers who worked so hard all year to prepare the children to enter primary school. We salute you!

Observing World Children's Day 22/11/2022

Observing World Children's Day

It was World Children's Day on Sunday - Sikhula Sonke released a media statement today.

Observing World Children's Day This year marks the 68th year that World Children’s Day has been celebrated across the world. On the 20th November we celebrate and honor children, but today, as adults, caregivers, parents and...


To all who support ForAfrika - thank you! Our children are among the many in South Africa who rely on this nutritious meal each day to build strong healthy bodies.

Receiving nutritious food at home is not always possible for many children across South Africa. Receiving a daily school meal means better physical and mental development, which leads to more capable and well-balanced adults in the future.

Did you know that a gift of R780 will feed a child in school for an entire year? That’s only R65 per month!

This Christmas, give a child hope for a brighter future - your contribution counts.

The jungle gym and playpark at the Enkanini playgroup and toy library centre are rusting and have become hazardous to young children in this safe space. Our team is currently dismantling them.

If you have a passion for children, learning and play, and you would like to give a Christmas gift to the children of Enkanini who love playing here, this is a great opportunity to refurbish this play space.

Calling on the Good Samaritans out there! Please contact Sikhula Sonke at [email protected] if this rings your bell.


Each year Drive for Excellence holds their Charity Golf Day and three NPOs are selected as recipients of the Day. We are excited to announce that Sikhula Sonke was awarded R660 000 towards “Unleashing the Potential and Fostering Positive Community”!

Thank you to Drive For Excellence (and all their donors) for this prestigious award and for funding to continue supporting Khayelitsha’s children, parents and educators into 2023.

ForAfrika … you’ve done it again! Our hearts are full, and lots of tummies will be filled too. Thank you for the food drop today.


Thank you to our partner ForAfrika for the wonderful donation to the Outreach Programme families in K2 Section last week. Your generosity always amazes and humbles us!

It's been a busy week around Khayelitsha as Sikhula Sonke facilitators ran our last Family and Community Motivator cluster workshops for the year in different areas.
Yesterday we closed the Monwabisi Park parent cluster at Sikhula Sonke's offices. We also had an awesome book sharing session with fathers interacting with their young children. In addition, the Western Cape Department of Health came on board and immunized our children. Throughout this busy day it was a joy to see children enjoying themselves at our toy library.

Thank you to our village!

Yoh, it was all happening in K2 Section yesterday: local parents and caregivers enjoyed a cluster workshop, children played and learned with our facilitators, and we had a wonderful visit from The Solon Foundation who recently made a huge contribution to child literacy. So much to be thankful for when we see what is on the go!

Over 1000 books! Thank to The Solon Foundation for giving a gift that never grows old.


And it's back to school after the holidays today! Wishing all of our Khayelitsha teachers and learners a wonderful last term of 2022.

Families whose houses burnt down at K2 settlements have received food parcels from ForAfrika, one of our major partners that oversees issues of health and nutrition amongst children. We are forever grateful for their continued support and the collaboration of the 2 organizations towards contributing on Sustainable Development Goals and National Development Policy.


To all the amazing, creative, humble, hardworking, passionate and persevering preschool teachers of Khayelitsha - happy teachers’s day. We see you!

Part 2 of our celebration was opening the play park we built for K2! Lots of excited children will learn, play and enjoy this safe play space with swings, jungle gyms and structures. We dedicate them in loving memory of Ntombikayise Nongogo, a little girl who tragically died in 2019 at the age of 5. 💕

It was such a joy to host our Annual Celebration in K2 on Wednesday with the parents, caregivers and community who live close to the Emthonjeni classroom we built earlier this year. You’ll notice we now have a roof creating a covered area for play, meetings and gatherings.
Tagging Scottie Dog Enterprises and The Solon Foundation 😊


Excited to celebrate today as we combine our Annual Celebration with the opening of a play area at K2!


Many colours, one nation. Our differences (languages, origins, interests and cultures) make a beautiful picture! Wishing you all a happy Heritage Day.
