Project Playground is a South African NPO working towards global sustainable change and increased equality. Our methods focus on individuals self realisation and self actualisation through a holistic approach, fostering a more peaceful, democratic and equal society .


Project Playground is a non-profit organisation, founded in 2010, engaging over 840 vulnerable children and youth in townships outside Cape Town in South Africa.   

Our vision is a world where every child and youth grow up with a belief in the future and the opportunity to positively impact their own lives. 

With a holistic approach we work using educational, recreational and supportive programs to empower vulnerable children and youth. One by one.  We aim to create self reliant individuals who are capable of managing their own lives and therefore contribute to the democratic, financial and equal development of their society. 

By being part of Project Playground, children gain self-esteem, determination and belief in the future. These three things are key to creating better life conditions and resilience, which results in a ripple effect throughout the whole community.
