Njabulo Day Care
Njabulo Day Care is a crèche situated in the Far East of Mamelodi, in an area called Alaska. The Day Care Centre currently has sixty children between the ages of 6 months and 6 years and is owned and operated by Betty Cele at her residential premises.
Alaska is an informal settlement that is affected by poverty, unemployment, woman and child abuse, substance abuse and teenage pregnancy. The majority of working females in the area are employed as domestic workers and a small percentage work in the retail industry, however the rest are unemployed.
Due to the circumstances that parents in the area are faced with, not all parents are able to afford the monthly school fees of R200.00 and therefore Betty Cele relies on support from donors to keep her day care running to ensure the best possible pre-school education for the children.
Du Toit Attorneys is sponsoring the Day Care’s meals as many children go to the Day Care without having eaten anything in the morning.
Njabulo Day Care
As Christmas 2017 was approaching, we asked all of our clients, colleagues, family and friends to commit to donating a Christmas Shoebox for each child, containing the following new items:
- An Outfit
- A Toy
- A pair of shoes
We quickly managed to arrange a box for each child and on 6 December 2017, we attended Njabulo Day Care to hand out the shoeboxes as well as enjoy their Christmas party with them. We also enjoyed a braai, which is an unusual event that side of Mamelodi which made quite an impression. Father Christmas was also there and each child was immensely overjoyed with their shoeboxes and a day filled to the brim with fun and laughter. We have never seen 60 children being blessed in such a short space of time. This began an annual event that was repeated in December 2018 and that we will continue.
‘Let us not become weary in doing good, for at
the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.’
