Working together to grow young leaders who spread a vision for holistic living

Earthchild Project is a Non-Profit Organisation operating in the Western Cape. They offer holistic education to under-resourced primary schools with a focus on the environment, health and self-development.  Inaugurated in 2007 Earthchild has been working with thousands of children in Khayelitsha and Lavender Hill, planting seeds of transformation through activities such as yoga, meditation, gardening, worm farming and hiking. Their vision is to create a new generation of confident, conscious, healthy, happy and responsible earthchildren.


The Sophia Foundation started sponsoring the Earthchild Alumni programme in 2015, its pilot year.  The programme focuses on nurturing the leadership potential of a select group of Earthchild primary school graduates throughout their high school years by offering quarterly skills development workshops, attendance at a camp and participation in the running and organisation of the Earthchild holiday programmes.

A fundamental concern for others in our individual and community lives would go a long way in making the world the better place we so passionately dreamt of
