Since our first step on the 31st of March 2007, Motheo Training Institute Trust has been addressing a critical need within impoverished communities in our country. We chose to focus on the holistic development of the youngest in our society because sustainable positive change is possible only when the most affected are empowered to control their destiny from the very beginning.
We envision a South Africa where all children receive the best possible care and development in their first 1,000 days - irrespective of who they are, where they live, or their families' socio-economic status. We started by offering training for Early Childhood Development Practitioners and capacitating other Service Providers.
Motheo was registered as a Public Benefit Trust (PBO) on the 17th of March 2011 in response to overwhelming requests from people we had trained for other skills development training. We also realised we could not view early childhood care and education (ECCE) as an exclusive entity; it needed to be an integral component of broader societal development. Nation-building is incomplete if we do not collectively address the needs and wants of the future custodians of our society: our children, especially during their formative years.
We have come a long way from our modest start as an unincorporated entity offering only ECD National Qualifications Framework (NQF) Level 1 and HIV/AIDS training. We are now a fully-fledged private and independent accredited FET College with Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) status. We provide training, research, resources, and other support to ECD practitioners, providers, and others contributing to our young children's care, safety, and development. We also conduct research, assist other non-profit organisations with fundraising, and provide motivational talks to youths and other groups..
With decades of diverse real-world experience, our highly-trained multidisciplinary team members work seamlessly to deliver comprehensive and professional training and support solutions. We are a passionate group of individuals united by a single purpose: ensuring that our work helps shape children towards becoming the best versions of themselves – who can subsequently contribute towards a world we can all be proud of.
