Do you have a perfect solution for the 4-5-year-olds from impoverished communities who are not meeting their age's literacy and language standards?

Attend a virtual information session on 18 May 2022 about a funding opportunity created to improve preschool teachers' support of early literacy development for 4- to 6-year-olds in South Africa's impoverished communities.

Innovation Edge created this funding opportunity after the Thrive by Five Index showed that almost half (49%) of 4-5-year-olds from the poorest households, who are attending the early learning programmes, are not meeting their age's literacy and language standards.
