Two-year-project for education of the team

Two childcare centres in Wallacedene and one in Mfuleni are currently up and running. There are many more centres in the close vicinity and a couple of them are part of the Kraaifontein ECD forum. The Mzamomhle Foundation is aimed at the realisation of buildings, but a solid building isn’t an end in itself. It is a means (and a prerequisite) to elevate childcare to the desired level. Together with CECD, our South African partner, and SPZA, a Dutch sister organisation that supports promising initiatives in the field of education, we have started with the execution of a two-year-plan to help realise this. Both Margaret’s and Grace’s childcare centre and other centres that are part of the ECD forum and can make use of it. The contents and goals for the first year of the programme can be found here.

Mza’Momhledaycare in Wallacedene township

  • During a volunteer trip 2006 first encounter with Margaret Ngaleka
  • She runs the centre in a poorly equipped and built accommodation
  • Re-accommodating
  • Margaret became the first objective of the Foundation
  • A stone building came with risks because the owner of the soil underneath was unknown
  • First, a temporary accommodation was set up with sea containers, a short-term solution
  • This was replaced by a stone building on a definitive location in 2012

Now our focus lies with the amelioration of care, education and the centre’s financial independence. Read more >
