Partner with Play Africa

As the first interactive children’s museum in Southern Africa, Play Africa brings vital playful learning experiences to families, schools and communities. We inspire children to succeed – and thrive – as innovators in the future. We provide holistic programmes for children aged 0 to 10, tailored to enhance their cognitive, social, emotional and physical development. But we can’t do this on our own. Contact us to create a customised gift that will make a significant difference to a child’s future.

Become a Play Africa Champion

Play Africa Champions are a passionate and purposeful group of monthly givers on a mission to ensure every child can experience playful learning.

We serve more than 9,000 children from local communities every year. But the demand is enormous. We urgently need your help to bring these experiences to more children.

100% of your monthly donation will go directly to support children’s playful learning in South Africa.

Launch an initiative

At Play Africa we have developed a range of customised programmes that promote creativity, problem-solving and empathetic team work. These are accessible to thousands of children, with their parents or educators. With your donation, you can either have a programme named after you or your company/organisation, or choose to create a name for the programme. Contact us to create a customised programme.

Invest in our innovations

Through prototyping, we’ve created a pipeline of programmes to offer thousands of children. With your support, we can bring these proven innovations to more children in South Africa and across the continent.
