Tiyani’s story

My name is Salvation. I am the father of Tiyani Masangwanyi who began attending Children’s Care Centre in January 2011 when he was just over one year old. Tiyani was a very sick boy, often refusing to eat. Because my wife was a student I was not able to go to work. Someone needed to look after him. We were advised to look into Children’s Care Centre.

South Africa Children's Care Center Fall 2012

As a parent who is also a student, Anela does not know what she would have done if she had been turned down by Children Care Centre.

Anela Maxhobi’s story (Seth’s mother)

As a parent who is also a student, Anela does not know what she would have done if she had been turned down by Children Care Centre. Maybe she would have had to send her son Seth to her home town East-London. Trying to find the best place for a child to learn and grow is not an easy task.

Organically grown children

Work has been done to train the preschools in organic gardening. They now grow their own veggies and herbs. Gardening combines multiple facets of nutrition education. It teaches young children where food comes from and which foods are healthy and why. The establishment of organic gardens was meant to increase production and improve availability to high quality foods.

Moses’ (Nhlanhla Rhadebe) Story

The beginning of September a young mother comes in with a 3 month old baby. She asks for the crèche’s assistance for a day to watch the baby while she goes out to find a job. It is now early December and this beautiful baby boy is still in our midst. His young mother has dropped in here and there to visit him. She shows much love for her child but is unable to take him back into her full care.

Esperance

Esperance Ndizeye, a refugee Women from Burundi, arrived in South Africa in 2004 with two children. Because she was new and had no job to help her survive, she came to the Children Care Centre (CCC) to ask for support. The project had no budget for such assistance but we put her on the list of those who could be employed by the project in case of a vacancy. In 2005, we had a need for a cook and we called her. She is now working at the centre.

The Program

In beginning preschool programs, 7 rural communities have formed good educational foundations and backgrounds for their children, to instill the culture of learning in them as early as possible. The preschools also create jobs for people directly involved with the children, such as the teachers. Global Family funds help to support the teachers, provide nutritious food for daily student snacks, and cover other operating costs.
