In celebration of Mandela Day 2019, Droogfontein Solar Power’s operations team chose to spend their ’67 minutes’ at Tsala Ya Bana Day Care, in Galeshewe, Kimberley.
The small day care centre, which looks after 144 children between the ages of 6 months and Grade R, received educational material including reading tools, books, puzzles, an educational laptop, alphabetic blocks and educational posters.
The day care centre also received a much-needed microwave and fridge to help in the preparation of warm meals, especially needed in winter.
In the spirit of this special day, there was also time for playing games, reading stories and the handover over of gift packs, which brought about smiles all-round.
“Our support of Tsala Ya Bana Day Care echoes the recent announcement by the Nelson Mandela Foundation, who will be focusing on Early Childhood Development for the next ten years,” said Hlengiwe Radebe, Economic Development Director for Droogfontein Solar Power.
Nelson Mandela believed that early education for our country’s children should take centre stage as it is the best way to radically change South Africa’s prospects for education and economic growth.
“Caring for our young is the most valuable way to bring about sustainable change in celebration of Madiba’s life and legacy,” concluded Radebe.
