The Mfuleni Early Childhood Development Centre (ECD) was SASDI’s pilot project and is going from strength to strength.
Principal Sandra Lucas had the wonderful idea to offer cooking classes at the school, a rarity in the Townships. Teacher Caitlyn comes once a week and transports the children into a delicious world. The month of August is all about party treats, with car biscuits, spider biscuits, a birthday cake and one lesson called the creative lesson. The children are given ingredients and they must conjure up their own party treat!
On Mandela Day, July 18, 2013, the Mfuleni ECD decided to give back to the community. The school invited residents of an old age home in the area to be serenaded by the children and were treated to a fantastic lunch. Sandra commented that she was helped by SASDI and now it’s her turn to help. All the children wore pyjamas in support of Madiba (Mandela) being in hospital.
