Provide a helping hand

For some, it offers the chance to give back to their community or make a difference in the lives of people around them.

For others, it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing capabilities. Regardless of the motivation, we appreciate each and every helping hand.

We are glad to announce our 2020 new venture to the rural area of Sabi Sand Wildtuin; with immediate focus on Utah and Dixie communities which forms part of the Northern cluster. These communities are less privileged with very little exposure to adequate and up to date ECD services.
