A new school sign for Othandweni Crèche
At NBI, we are humbled to have had the opportunity to extend our support to the Othandweni Crèche, and witness the growth and development of these wonderful children.
The creche was established in 2011 and is a registered NPO with the Department of Social Development. In its early years, it operated out of a single-room facility but blossomed further in 2013 when NBI had the privilege to donate a park home and an enclosed area of land with ablution facilities on our property.
In 2019 we erected a further 2 classrooms and upgraded the ablutions. This was done in order for them to accommodate the growing number of students (then 58) and furthermore meet the criteria to qualify them for government grants.
Whilst the Creche is independently run by its Governing Body, NBI continues to provide support in terms of land, infrastructure, electricity and water, monthly food contributions and ad-hoc assistance on books and teaching aids.
More recently, we were thrilled to present them with a stunning new school sign, which we hope will serve as a symbol of the bright future that awaits them.
It is truly heartening to see the dedication and passion with which the staff at the Crèche work towards providing these (now 90) children with a nurturing and stimulating environment. We are proud to be associated with such a remarkable school and look forward to continuing our efforts to support them in the future.
