There was great celebration on Friday, 22 July 2022 when the children of Angels Day Care 2 entered
their officially opened 6-metre converted shipping container classroom for the first time.


Orange Farm in Gauteng is a township of Dutch origin, located approximately 45km (28 miles) from
Johannesburg and is the southernmost township within the municipality. Its name is a misnomer with
references to the growing of oranges. It is one of the youngest townships in South Africa, with the
original inhabitants being laid-off farm workers who took up residency in 1988.


35% of the residents are unemployed, contributing to a relentless cycle of poverty in the community.
Prior to the donation of the classroom, the shack structures were unsafe and did not comply with
government registration requirements. This meant that the principal was unable to apply for the much-needed
government financial assistance that is made available to registered pre-schools.


Nompumelelo Mngomezulu, secretary of Angels Day Care 2 said “Thanks to a very special Breadline
Africa donor, the new structure brings us closer to being able to register for a daily subsidy that will
help provide nutritional support and resources for the children.”
