Your donations enable PSFA to feed at 11 new Early Childhood Development Centres (ECD’s)

In response to pleas from ECD’s situated in impoverished communities in the Grabouw area, we are delighted to announce that, thanks to your donations, eleven ECD’s have been included on our feeding programme. The total number of children we will be feeding is 300. This is being done in collaboration with the Elgin Learning Foundation, who are in turn providing other assistance in the form of library services, skills training and toy supplies in support of these fledgling ECD’s.

The names of these ECD’s are:

  1. Funda Nathi
  2. Masipumele
  3. Ncedo Educare
  4. Handjies & Voetjies
  5. Ukwakha Imphilo
  6. Little Folks
  7. Kammaland
  8. Mbalentle Day Care Centre
  9. Fairy Land Educare
  10. Baby Angel
  11. Faith Ithemba Day Care

The majority of these ECD’s are currently being operated from the carer’s homes due to the lack of infrastructure. They are very small, caring for approximately 30 children per crèche. The carers themselves are also impoverished.

The PSFA fieldworkers have conducted assessments at these eleven sites and are in the process of strategising with regard to how and where the food for these sites will be prepared. Over and above the supply of food, PSFA will also be providing each crèche with the utensils, equipment and cooking gas needed to prepare and serve nutritious meals on a daily basis.
