Our vested interest in the early development of children is an essential part of our goal to inspire healthy, engaged, and civic-minded adults.
Sessions take place in empty classrooms and local youth are trained to become educational facilitators who teach based on our Creative Learning Curriculum.
We focus on reducing food insecurity, building self-reliance among cash-dependent communities, & encouraging local enterprise growth.
Open 365 days a year, the NIVEA Thanda Centre is a safe place where children are free to be themselves and where they can learn, play and explore.
