Edutainer® Comments

I find the Edutainer® very user-friendly for me, my teachers and the children. It is wonderful."
Selina Malepa, Teacher at Ithuthuba Preschool
Four Pillars of Success

The are four essential parts which come together for each successful Edutainer® project, each equally important.


The Non-Government Organisation selected much specialise in Early Child Development. They are responsible for identifying the site for the new Edutainer®, and thus their specialist knowledge covers an understanding of which schools have the best teacher training and potential to make the project a success.

The Recipient School

There is a huge demand for Edutainers® in schools across the country. But it is essential that the chosen school has the drive, capacity and skills to exploit the possibilities which these new classrooms provide. Only schools with outstanding performance despite the odds, or outstanding potential in terms of staff and community, are considered.

The Bright Kid Foundation

The Bright Kid Foundation oversees the entire process. From the fitting of the container, to working with the NGO and school, we make sure that every project is guaranteed to excel.

The Donor

Of course, none of what we do would be possible without the donor. Whether a Corporate Social Investment venture which sponsors one or multiple containers, or through the accumulation of private donations, the projects cannot be undertaken without generous community support. For a list of some of our donors as well as the Edutainers® currently changing lives in South Africa, please see below.
