Siyathuthuka Crèche was founded in 2012 by Sindy Zulu a retired teacher, who recognized the desperate need for children in the area to have access to pre-schooling in order to better prepare them for school. Siyathuthuka translated to English means “We are developing”.
Siyathuthuka Crèche is the only Early Childhood Development (ECD) facility in the area, serving 2 communities of eSikwakwaneni and Magwenya areas in KwaMduku with a population of about 3600 of people. The creche currently has an enrolment of 41 children who are taken care of by 3 volunteers (Sindy and a further 2 educators). It also has an active creche committee made up of 7 members. Every cent raised will contribute to the development of this crèche site, which needs ablutions, a kitchen, classrooms, a play area and veggie garden. If you are donating directly towards the project and not towards a cyclist please use the following reference #947Siyathuthuka.
