About the project:

Nobuntu Disabled and Community Development was established in 2017 as a pre-school with a particular focus on children with disabilities. When she saw the hunger in the community, founder and principal, Anastacia Mtumtum opened a community soup kitchen in 2020 and started a vegetable garden in 2021 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The community soup kitchen and vegetable garden support both the pre-school and the surrounding community.

The challenge:

Despite all of Anastacia’s efforts to improve her pre-school and community, the current structures at the centre do not allow all 80 children to attend school at the same time. This means that no child is being educated daily – putting them at risk from both an educational and societal perspective, as the community struggles with a range of socio-economic ills, from petty crime to gangsterism.

The need:

An additional 36m² prefabricated classroom with toilet will allow the pre-school to accommodate all enrolled children simultaneously every day, ensuring that they learn in a safe and stimulating environment.
