The name Masikhule means 'Let us Grow' in isiXhosa.

Masikhule is a non-profit organisation based in the Helderberg, Western Cape, training women from marginalized comunities in Early Childhood Development since 2005.

Community-based Early Learning Centres in these communities are mentored and developed.  Early intervention, nutrition and capacity building are key to this. Over 1 800 children from birth to 6 years of age are educated and nurtured in these pre-schools each year, providing them with a sound early learning programme and the best start in life.
