Demand and awareness

All parents have the power to help their children reach their full potential with simple everyday actions – loving, playing and talking.   

Our goal is for all people in South Africa, especially caregivers, to understand the importance of early childhood development, and to take action in the home and in their communities so that children receive better quality care.

In 2015, Ilifa Labantwana launched a parenting education campaign called #LovePlayTalk, which supports parents to give their children the best possible start in life.

The #LovePlayTalk parenting education radio show flights weekly on 13 South African language stations.
