Singakwenza, meaning “we can do it!” In isiZulu, aims to build sustainable early childhood education programmes in economically disadvantaged communities.
Director and creator of this organisation, Julie Hay explains.
“Based in Howick in KwaZulu-Natal, our charity organisation uses resources made solely from recycling to help caregivers provide fun, educational activities that enable young children to learn through play.”
N3TC – have a programme called “Touching Lives”, which supports community projects that are working to improve the lives of people along the N3 corridor between Cedara and Heidelberg. Singakwenza is very proud to be one of the Touching Lives projects, as the sponsorship we receive enables us to mentor in 7 creches between Cedara and Winterton, and to run Waste2Toys workshops where needed along this corridor.
I’m not sure how many of you go to your Board Meetings and get to do an obstacle course or play with playdough! This is what our Board experienced and had to participate in recently. A quick visit to two of the amazing creches we work with gave the Board members a brief glimpse into the work that we do, and it was such a wonderful morning. We are so grateful to our Board members, Reg Zammit, Caroline Richter, Nondu Nzimande, Kgashane Mohale, Debbie McCarthy, Rosie Chite and Seelan Naidoo for their support and advice, and for ensuring that our values of transparency, integrity and good governance are upheld.
