"The March Squares List is now available ! The total is lower than the past two months because of a slow down by South African postal workers which caused the cancellation of 2 opening days in March. "

Lost Childhood

TOGETHER WE CAN DO MORE!

In July 2014 we visited two day-care centres – Vukuzenzele and Zenzele.  I looked up the meaning of these names and there are a few variations, but my favourite one I have used as the headline for this report.  Some of the others included:

“To make something out of nothing”

“To do it yourself”

“To wake up and do it yourself”

All of these aptly describe so many of the day-care centres that we visit, groups of people who come together and make do with the little they have, in order to make a difference in the lives of these precious children.

Our first stop was Vukuzenzele.  This is a very small centre and the area around the school was barren and depressing.
