Toy Library

Educational toys are vital for learning and growth, but are unaffordable to poor communities. Iliso’s Toy Library encourages young children to play, using toys that develop intellectual, cognitive, physical and emotion skills.


Books are vital for learning, with libraries in Khayelitsha in high demand. Schoolgoers do their homework here, with help from two assistants. They also watch educational videos, use and borrow books and help each other learn. Other ECD groups make regular use of library facilities.
