Our facility is situated on the grounds of the VUSISISWE SECONDARY SCHOOL in Zweletemba. The school allows us to use a large piece of their property rent free and for this we are extremely grateful.

Or facility consists of:

  • Two small shipping containers which serve two kitchens feeding children in different areas of Zweletemba.
  • Two large double shipping containers serve as our two after care classrooms
  • One small shipping container which the older boys use as their clubhouse- chess, monopoly, darts, dominoes and homework.

We use the facility to:

  • Feed a hot meal to about 210 of these hungry, neglected and often abused children daily Monday to Friday.
    The meals are well balanced and delicious. 3 cooks work hard every day preparing the food.
  • Provide an after care facility which caters for between 80 and 130 of the above children, runs classes from Grade R to Grade 5.
    The project is well equipped with educational games, puzzles, story books –and 2 qualified and 2 student teachers look after and help the children. The local branch of Round Table has donated playground equipment which is also very popular.

When funding allows, we take the children on outings- so they can experience something of life outside the township. Trips to the seaside, the aquarium – and the local fire station have proved very popular.

A handyman keeps the grounds and containers in good shape.

All our staff live in Zweletemba and all were previously unemployed.
