Greetings Friends and Family of The Learning Initiative (TLI)

This year, we hit the ground running. Our 15 teams, each consisting of a therapist/programme implementer and facilitator, currently offer therapy sessions to 74 creches in Masiphumelele, Vrygrond, Fisantekraal, Atlantis, Mitchells Plain, Worcester to name a few.

To understand the barriers children encounter, we screened 1,786 children and found that 1,187 were developmentally at-risk and they now participate in our group therapy sessions twice a week. We have distributed 3,865 stimulation packs filled with pencils, puzzles, books, play activity sheets, playdough etc., for parents to encourage stimulation at home.
