Uthando Update: Kiddies Daycare

Last week Friday we announced our Valentine’s Day pairing with the Uthando Organisation, whereby upon reaching our 1000th facebook fan, we’d donate some money to the organisation as a token of our appreciation for our facebook fans support.

We’d like to encourage all of our fans to do the same, and make a donation that will really make a difference this Valentine’s Day. The money will definitely be well appreciated and will enable the organisation to continue with such worthwhile projects as the Kiddies Daycare Centre in Khayelitsha, Cape Town.

The Kiddies Educare Centre is a day care centre for children between the ages of a few months old and six or seven years old. The centre currently has 47 children which come to the centre everyday from 6am – 6pm. Uthando are helping to build a proper brick structure for the daycare, which was previously housed in a makeshift shack. Margaret, the loving and committed principal of 10 years, is overjoyed that the kids now have a safe, welcoming environment to play in.
