We have so much to be thankful for! There are a huge number of children who will never have access to our kind of music-based resources. Giving back is an appropriate response to our gratitude.

The SOUNDSTART project

The SOUNDSTART project aims to provide pre-schools with educational resources in audio format.  Lifeline Energy supplies GROW ECDs in the project with their incredible solar powered radio / MP3 players.  Wriggle and Rhyme contributes music-based, educational content.

Who is involved?


GROW believes that proper Early Childhood Development (ECD) has the power to change the course of a life – and, in so doing, uplift the fabric of South African society, piece by piece.

Lifeline Energy manufactures and distributes solar and wind-up MP3 players and radios for large education and information projects mainly in Africa. Since 1999, 600,000 power-independent MP3s and radios have reached more than 20 million listeners. Lifeline Energy’s focus is on vulnerable populations, including those displaced by natural disasters or conflict. 

Wriggle and Rhyme joined SOUNDSTART to supply our unique music-based resources to the project.
