Flourish is a social franchises network that seeks to offer universal access to mom and baby classes that support, celebrate and empower mothers through the critical first 1000 days of a child’s life.

The first 1000 days of a child’s life (i.e. from conception to age two) is an opportunity to establish a foundation for children’s academic success, health and general well-being. However, it is also a period of vulnerability to stunting. In efforts to end the prevalence of stunting in South Africa, Flourish was born.

Using a social franchise model, and drawing from the latest literature, Flourish aims to provide universal access to mom & baby classes (called Flourish visits) that support, support, celebrate and empower pregnant & new mothers through the critical first 1000 days of a child’s life.

WHAT IS THE FLOURISH JOURNEY?

The Flourish journey is made up of weekly Flourish visits over a period of 10 weeks with a group of 10 mom’s to be. These visits are run by the Flourish franchisee in local communities and cover a range of maternal and child health topics, as well as self-care & self-nurturing tips and techniques. Only licensed Flourish franchisees are permitted to run Flourish visits and Flourish visits are in no way a replacement for pregnant women’s routine clinical antenatal care.

Flourish antenatal classes are currently running in the following neighbourhoods: Riverside, Soshanguve, Garankuwa, Mamelodi, Laudium, Kwa-Thema, Tsakane, Vosloorus, Katlehong, Alexandra, Yeoville, Johannesburg CBD, Clayville, Atteridgeville, Soweto, Thembisa, Diepsloot, Midrand, Worcester, Khayelitsha (Western Cape), Mopane, Glen Cowie, Capricorn District, Polokwane, Sekhukhune (Limpopo), Nkomazi, Kanyamazane, Sibange & Siyabuswa (Mpumalanga).

Thank you so much to Mariaan Du Plessis, CEO at The Medical Nutritional Institute and her team for the generous donation.
