Not sure what to do this Mandela Day, Tuesday 18 July? If you’re in the Overstrand area, we’d love your help. Give 67 minutes of your time, working in the Early Childhood Development (ECD) Centres in and around Gansbaai.


What do we need?

We have five centres that form part of our Flower Valley ECD Programme. For 67 minutes, you can volunteer at any of the centres, giving your time working in their gardens, playgrounds and helping improve infrastructure.

Or help by giving materials and resources needed by the centres.

The ECD Programme currently works with more than 130 children at centres across the Strandveld region to ensure a safe and nurturing environment to encourage holistic development.

Says Gabbi Jonker, Coordinator of the Flower Valley ECD Programme, “At the Early Childhood Development Programme, we love to incorporate Mandela Day and inspire the community to get involved with the children to help improve the centres.”

She says, “Every year, we are lucky enough to reflect on our country’s past, to celebrate the late Nelson Mandela and use our 67 minutes to unite and build a future. It is in our hands to make South Africa a better place, and you are invited to come spend the day with us.”
