What We Do
Open Plan Learning is a non-profit organisation that aims to help children in underprivileged schools achieve a better education through play-based learning. We design, print and distribute games and other resources to schools in South Africa who don’t have the necessary tools to provide young students with a proper basic education.
Learning should be fun. That is our main focus at Open Plan Learning and through our play-based approach to education, we want to inspire young children to explore the world around them and enjoy learning.
We realise that there are countless schools in South Africa, as well as the rest of the world who don’t have the necessary tools to provide their students with a meaningful education. We would like to change that by equipping classrooms with educational resources, assisting financially and helping wherever help is needed.
Research has shown that children learn best through play. Our hope is that we can inspire teachers and others in education to start utilising play as a teaching method and that play-based learning will one day be part of school curricula in the form of prescribed games.
