Newsletter Baphumelele - November 2022


‘Baphumelele ‘s Educare' Care Centre has been a provider of quality and affordable education to countless children since its inception in 1989. Throughout the years, the centre has gone through minor changes to keep it up with the growing number of scholars, currently that number is over 200 children who range from 6moths – 6years. After so many years, the Educare' Care Centre is finally getting the renovation worthy of the education it provides together with the help of our Partners, Friends and Funders, we have managed to make the vision Mama Rosie had, a reality.

Make the vision that Mama Rosie had, a reality. The journey was not an easy one thus far. With the renovations commencing after years of lockdown due to the global pandemic, we did not want to keep children away from school any longer than they should. As such, we devised a plan to house the scholars in different buildings of Baphumelele while construction continued. We are happy to announce that in the new year, we will be formally opening the new EduCare Centre Building. Students will have the learning space that can accommodate all of their educational needs. All of this would not have been possible without the visionary leadership of our Founder, Mama Rosie, our dedicated staff and of course our partners and Friends who continuously support Baphumelele.
