Childcare & Education

The second United Nations (UN) Millennium Developmental Goals included the achievement of universal primary education by 2015, which includes children with disabilities.  But for millions of children with physical and intellectual disability this goal may not be close to realization, despite various UN Declarations affirming their rights to education.  to address this dire situation, we led the way in establishing 4 Special Daycare Centers in partnership with various stakeholders and beneficiaries:

Rise & Shine Special Daycare Center, Worcester

Caring & Sharing Special Daycare Center, Touws River

Umnenge Special Daycare Center, De Doorns

Rawsonville Special Daycare Center, Rawsonville

Our special daycare centers are non-residential facilities that provides for the educational development, physical development, training, stimulation and care of children with physical and/or intellectual disabilities.  Children with special care needs are able to benefit from a carefully planned stimulation program.
