Kholeka Hanise is a passionate teacher and caregiver who started the Umthawelanga Educare in 2002 to educate and empower the children in her pocket of Mfuleni, Khayelitsha. The school has become a victim of its own success as it has outgrown the physical premises she has. After years of saving she started on her renovations in 2018 to enlarge the space but has been unable to complete the ambitious project. The recent rains have damaged the roof more and flooded her little Creche badly. And this is where we step in!
The Little Optimist Trust, with the help of our supporters, want to repair the leaking roof, install a new bathroom, professionally tile the floors and create a small kitchenette to comfortably cook for the small children in her care. There are 35 children waiting to return to the safe sanctuary she has always been in the community.
HELP US to HELP HER!
There are 2 ways in which you can help:
1. Give of your finances:
All donations via the backabuddy link go directly to the renovation work at the school.
2. Donate some of your time:
We plan to have a volunteer day at the Educare where you can get involved in painting, minor repairs, organising the spaces and getting the school ready to welcome the young ones back!
If you would like to volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We will keep you up to date on this exciting project and look forward to seeing all those kids back at school!
