2017 Impumelelo Social Innovations Platinum Award

Bright Kid Foundation is honoured to be the recipient of this prestigious award. It is a testament to the Bright Kid Foundation ECDC program delivering high quality certified ECD infrastructure  - a significant, sustainable investment in South Africa’s children.




We are thrilled to announce that the Bright Kid Foundation has been awarded the Platinum Impumelelo Award for Social Innovation for its Early Childhood Development Centre programme developed over the last 17 years.
