FCW

Who are we?

FCW bases it's projects on Early Childhood Development because we believe that if we can intervene at a grass root level then we can make a difference

Where do we come from?

We have been based in Kewtown since our inception 33 years ago.  We started as just a small NGO but we are now at the forefront of our field.

Where are we going

We want to make ECD accessible to all children in rural areas throughout South Africa.  And we can already see this vision unfolding.

Partnership with BEN (Bicycle Empowerment Network)

The partnership between BEN and FCW started in 2006 with a series of discussions and meetings. The concern we had was that our Home Visitors in rural communities had to walk long distances between farms to support young children and their caregivers and we approached BEN with the hope that they could assist our programme with an alternative and cheap mode of transport. During 2007 we agreed that a small group of Home Visitors should be oriented into understanding basic maintenance of bicycles.

 

On 24 April our dream was realized when we received the first 20 bikes that will be used in our rural areas.
