What is Early Childhood Development?
SANZAF’s ECD or Early Childhood Development tier of SEED refers to a comprehensive approach, with the active participation of their parents, educators and caregivers to fully realise a child’s rights to develop his or her full cognitive, emotional, social, educational and physical potential from a grassroots level.
South Africa still has a long way to go in improving the accessibility of education and pre-school facilities to young children. Key reasons for this are affordability, lack of proper child care schools and a shortage of resources at existing facilities. In light of this SANZAF’s ECD project serves children whose parents cannot send them to ECD centres and develops child-care facilities, educators and playschools in under resourced areas.
This year our goal is to open up an ECD centre in the community of Kwalanga in Gauteng. The area is one of the least serviced areas in the province which has led to SANZAF already developing and maintaining a development project for the children of the area.
The Kwalanga Early Childhood Development Centre project, which will be situated in Kwa Thema on the East Rand, was initiated to provide children with high-quality education and a place of safety. It is hoped that through the project, children from the area will go on to succeed in primary and high school. The ECD centre will play an important role in reducing the vicious cycle of poverty that plagues this community and will help to create prosperity for the community at large.
The Kwalanga ECD Centre forms part of a larger project, the Kwalanga Multi-purpose Community Centre that endeavours to provide educational, recreational, vocational and spiritual services to the community. The facility currently houses a recreational space for children and young adults, community hall and food garden.
Do your part by helping SANZAF #GiveHope to the children of Kwalanga.

The South African National Zakah Fund (SANZAF) is pleased to announce the financial results of its period ended 30 April 2018/14 Shabaan 1439.
“We are eternally grateful to our donors, whose support of our projects and programmes has resulted in SANZAF collecting a total of over R133 million during the reporting period, amid a challenging economic environment,” says SANZAF National Chairperson, Shauket Fakie.
Our Zakah income for this period amounted to R96 million, compared to R111 million in the previous year which, along with our Non Zakah income, enabled us to make a significant impact on the lives of the poor and needy.
The past year has indeed been one of renewed affirmation for SANZAF, as we continue to actively fulfil our mandate to effect meaningful and sustainable change through development and relief.
“We are pleased to report that the proportional distribution of total funds collected, has increased from 91.5%, in the previous year, to 98.2%. This increased distribution is reflected in our empowerment initiatives, which give credence to SANZAF’s new brand positioning of embodying hope in all we do,” added Fakie.
It is noteworthy to mention that our expenditure on the SANZAF Education, Empowerment and Development (SEED) Programme amounted to R27.7 million, which was invested in a number of initiatives ranging from bursaries for tertiary education to development projects that have enabled beneficiaries to become self-sufficient.
