Flourish Project / Programme Manager

Grow Great is a national campaign aimed at galvanising South Africa towards a national commitment towards a stunting free generation by 2030. Stunting is a social justice issue that is associated with lifelong cognitive defects, educational and employment challenges, increased risk of chronic diseases in adulthood and cycles of intergenerational poverty.

Flourish is Grow Great’s flagship intervention for supporting and empowering moms through the critical first 1000 days of their child’s life, a time of great vulnerability to stunting. Flourish delivers antenatal and postnatal classes to communities through Flourish hosts, underpinned by the values of empathy, non-judgment and respect.

Since launching, Flourish has licensed over 300 hosts who have facilitated antenatal and postnatal classes that have reached over 30 000 pregnant and new mothers to date.
