Welcome to Umncedi!

How can we help you?

Umncedi exists to connect people working with young children to good quality information and resources. We believe that together we can help South Africa’s children stand tall.

What is Umncedi?

Umncedi works to connect people working with young children. We consolidate knowledge generated by organisations working with young children, to connect practitioners to resources that will help them to deliver good quality services for young children and their families.

We do this gathering informational resources that have been created, helping to curate those resources, and ensuring that they are disseminated through WhatsApp, Facebook and SMS.

In addition, we conduct new research to support resource distribution for early learning programmes.
