About Us

DSCF0624Footprints is who we are, P.L.A.Y is what we do

P.L.A.Y is an acronym for, Participating in the Lives of Africa’s Youth.

“Footprints P.L.A.Y.” was birthed from the personal vision, passion and mentorship heart of  Yolanda Zafi PhD to meet the needs of children in various circumstances. Yolanda and her two daughters, Sylvia and Kerry-Lee have dedicated their lives to Footprints P.L.A.Y, and ensure that the atmosphere within their home is one of family and healthy  identity which  is lived out daily. They are assisted by a dedicated team who voluntarily participate in this large joy filled, rainbow family.

 SylvieInAfricaWithin the Footprints P.L.A.Y. family, we also  provide a place of safety for children, which allows them to experience the love, care and security of a family life, whilst  being educated and taught various life skills. The Footprints family are actively involved with external communities and play a part in the lives of disadvantaged youth. We are a family that spreads love, hope and opportunity to children who desire a successful future regardless of their  circumstances.

In 2004, Footprints P.L.A.Y. became affiliated to Iris Global and has since become an Iris Global – South Africa Missions base. These two organizations share the same core values, vision and passion for children, community and the poor. Heidi Baker, together with her husband Rolland Baker have been instrumental in establishing  children’s centers throughout Africa which has further encouraged Yolanda to continue to enlarge the vision for Footprints P.L.A.Y. within the South African borders.

“Footprints P.L.A.Y.” is BEE compliant, a public benefit organization, is registered as a non profit, is completely self-funded and does not receive grants from government. The organization is entirely reliant on donations.
