The property consists of 2 classrooms which houses the children according to age groups. One is a basic wooden structure and the other a proper concrete classroom extending to the road.
When we visited the crèche in February the immediate need was a proper fence in front of the property as the existing one was just a makeshift fence made of wooden planks. This would allow the kids more freedom to play outside of the classroom.
We proudly donated the funds of over R20 000 to erect the fence and hence our visit to view the fence. The community is so grateful that their kids are able to safely play outside and we feel honoured to have assisted in giving the children the freedom to play safely outside as all children should. We also took other items of food that they desperately need on a monthly basis to keep the children fed such as rice, samp, mielie meal and muffins and much needed toilet paper.
We also spoilt the children with party packets filled with delicious goodies.
When we arrived there the wooden structure had collapsed due to the bad weather. Harriet had to rent a room at a neighbours house and house some of the children there.
They are now in desperate need of a new classroom and ablution facilities as the children use buckets outside the classrooms
Harriet has done an amazing job of pushing forward with her dream to educate the children and get them ready for school and her commitment to improving the school is evident.
The Union of Jewish Women are working closely with Harriet to realise some of these challenges that she is facing by raising awareness and getting sponsorships and donations.
ELUNDINI DISABLED CRECHE
We also visited this crèche and donated groceries for childrens daily meals.
As usual we always spoil the children with goodie bags full of treats.
Indy has managed to secure the premises including the ground from the council at a very good price. The Union of Jewish Women are also raising funds and getting sponsorships and donations so that she can purchase the land.
Please view our video clips from the Harriet and Indy thanking Baz Bus for all that we have done for them!
