"A lovely report and very happy children. The photos of that little girl are priceless. It is a shame that the day care is not funded, it is such a caring place."

REPORT FROM SOUTH AFRICA - RETHABILE DAYCARE

Wandi and I loved this distribution ... when I stopped to collect her, I dropped off 13 bags of squares for Naledi gogo group, plus 6 or 7 bags full of blankets and other items for the Methodist Outreach from Pimville who are driving to Natal on 9th Sept for a visit to an extremely poor settlement in rural Zululand, under the leadership of Mrs Sekele.

Alice who runs Rethabile in the Braam Fischer informal settlement, had heard about Knit-a-Square from someone in FINETOWN … and she had apparently been badgering Wandi for weeks for a visit.  We were both delighted to realise how the news of KAS had travelled by word of mouth from Finetown in the Vaal Triangle – all the way to Soweto.


Rethabile Daycare is one of those amazing places where the childrens' needs are quite obviously a high priority.  Alice had installed some interesting ways in which to stimulate the children – one was a model “Kruger Park”, a small corner in which there were clay models of the big five and some “vegetation” emulating jungle surroundings !!  Ingenious.

Also there were two sets of electrically operated models of traffic lights which were in working condition to help her instruct the children on the rules of the road. 

Each age group had their own room and a dedicated “teacher” for each.
