Great Initiative

About us

E3 works with local partners to bring transformation to communities affected by poverty, HIV and AIDS, gender-based violence and COVID-19 in Southern Africa. Our partners understand the challenges and issues first-hand and how to respond in a sustainable way. We empower their leaders through training and financial support to respond to the social issues around them. In particular, E3 helps enable HIV support initiatives, microfinance to improve livelihoods, support for orphaned and vulnerable children to attend school and thrive, and workshops to help stop gender-based violence and support for those affected.

Umvini Preschool Appeal

Help create a safe and nurturing place for preschoolers to learn and thrive in Umvini, South Africa.

Quality care and education is vital so children have a solid foundation. Families face chronic hunger, inadequate housing, lack of income and low living standards. The effects of poverty can be devastating to child development, including illnesses, chronic malnutrition, slow cognitive development and academic failures.

Your support can help rewrite children’s stories. Preschoolers now and in the years to come, will receive high quality early years education at Umvini Preschool, with a good spiritual foundation, from trained teachers and assistants near to their homes. Children will enjoy two good quality nutritious meals a day. Those who have already moved on to primary school have settled and coped well thanks to their preschool education.

Umvini already runs a small crèche for 16 children in a makeshift building. Many local families want to bring their children to the preschool, but it is not big enough to meet demand.

E3 and Umvini are raising funds to complete a new, larger preschool building, which will cater for 75 orphaned and vulnerable children. The new preschool will cater for a wider age range too, helping more toddlers receive a strong start in life.

Priority is given to orphaned and vulnerable children in greatest need – those of teenage mums who are still at school and others being raised by their elderly grandmothers, some of whom have 8 children to care for.
