About the project:

Principal, Matise Ompie established his pre-school in 2010 with 16 children and this is one of the few pre-schools in the community that is run by a male principal! He originally collected children from parents in his street who were not attending school and gave them a safe space by offering a daycare service. One the parents saw his dedication and commitment and encouraged him to establish a proper pre-school to teach the children he had in his care.

The challenge:

Even though Matise has done everything he can to meet the growing demand for early education in his community, the two classrooms that he currently has are at capacity and he is unable to assist any more little ones. Because the community is impoverished, fees are very low and he is also unable to access government funding to increase the cash flow. Matise is now also teaching the ‘overflow children’ in the family living room.

The need:

A 18m² prefab classroom will offer Principal Matise additional space for the currently enrolled children and allow for growth. This infrastructure will meet the infrastructure registration requirement, allowing him to apply for a government grant to assist the school.

Two mountain bikers are taking on the 2023 Absa Cape Epic and are fundraising for Mivuyo Educare Centre. With your donations, Danielle Reineke and Alan van Schoor hope to provide Matise and Mivuyo Educare Centre with a safe classroom. Let’s give these children a safe and nurturing environment to grow and learn in.
