Building healthy relationships for children:
Training Service Research
75% of a child’s brain is formed in the first year.*
Research shows that the First 1000 Days of life (conception to 2 years old) are the most important in laying a solid foundation for a child’s physical and emotional development. Unfortunately, many South African children do not get the love and care they need to grow up into healthy, happy and productive adults
That is why Ububele focuses its expertise and programmes on improving the emotional development of children under 7 years old to make the most impact on the future of South Africa. Located in Kew, most of our programmes are located in nearby Alexandra, home to over 500 000 people including 30 000 children under 7.
