"Early Childhood Development not only means focusing on the learners but also on the teachers and parents/caregivers of the children. Making sure that all three have the tools to learn, teach and guide is important to the success of this legacy project" - Thomas Schaefer, Chairman and Managing Director of Volkswagen Group South Africa
