Due to the significant lack of investment in Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres across South Africa. ECD centres located in rural and or peri urban areas often operate as informal day care centres. These centres struggle to afford to purchase basic educational resources and often are non-compliant with the Department of Social Development (DSD).
Letsatsi’s ECD development programme supports 9 centers and includes assistance to ensure these ECD’s are compliant with legislative requirements and thus qualify for the respective government operating subsidies/grants. Such grants support ECD running costs.
All 9 ECD’s were supported with furniture, mattresses, fire extinguishers, HSE training, implements and learning material accompanied with 12-month practical training. A total of 5 ECD’s received Prefab Nutrition Kitchens.
