The Mikhulu Child Development Trust bridges the gap between academic research on parenting, and families and the networks that support them. We are at the forefront of promoting evidence-based early childhood development in South Africa; and in particular, advancing an innovative programme called ‘dialogic book-sharing’.

Relationships that are nourishing help nurture resilient and curious children, and any caregiver – regardless of their formal education – can provide this support when given the right tools. We work with organisations and government to integrate our programmes into the services they offer families, and promote further research into book-sharing interventions.
