Happy to be back

After another closure due to the lockdown situation KCC has finally opened again in February. While some activities are still restricted due to level 3 lockdown everyone at KCC was eager to start again with their work. 

Three new staff members have been signed. One of them is a former teacher. She had already been teaching sewing at KCC some years ago. KCC is looking forward to continue the sewing project under her supervision, soon. The first project work is sewing masks and sell them around the community. In addition, ten groups of children and youth have been created to work on the garden project with staff monitoring the process and the selected food that is going to be grown. 

About 110 kids are currently fed at KCC every day. They come in three groups at different times to avoid crowds. Some days ago Dr. Ntsiki from a clinic in Pretoria visited KCC to drop of some donations and pray for KCC. She donated small food parcels, clothes and sweets for 50 families which kids took home.

School to school visits have been done recently by KCC staff. They have been asking to partner with local schools for the educational program that is run at KCC. 5 school already agreed to work with KCC and improve the program. Moreover, two local clinics have been contact to work together in terms of community health projects concerning kids, youth and health issues.

Last but not least, KCC has been a busy place for many years now. So, some maintenance and other repairs had to be done. Recently, we started with the toilets, basins and doors that have been fixed now. 

Latest news

After another closure due to the lockdown situation KCC has finally opened again in February. While some activities are still restricted due to level 3 lockdown everyone at KCC was eager to start again with their work. 

Looking back at 2020, a year that has been very difficult to all of us, we want to thank those who supported us throughtout the year. After we had started with the We Can't Eat Air Campaign in April more organisations and people approached KCC to offer their help.

On the third day of the "We Can't Eat Air - Campaign" the remaining families received their long-awaited food parcels. The first phase of the campaign has now come to an end. We thank everyone who helped to make it a great success.

The second day in a row KCC staff and supporters went out to reach more families in the community providing them with food parcels. Families were crying because they had not had food for days, only surviving with drinking water.

We take actions while government is still making plans. Due to lockdown Kgomotso Children Centre had to close its doors - but it didn’t close its eyes. We started the „We Can’t Eat Air - Campaign“ to hand out food parcels to 65 families of KCC kids who are in a desperate situation.

Due to the nation-wide lockdown KCC currently is closed. Few staff are staying at the centre for cases of emergency. It's expected we willl re-open when schools open again. Stay safe!

We are bringing cinema to the township! KCC is now doing a monthly movie day for the community. Kids, youth and adults - everyone is welcome. The next movie day will be 6 and 7 of March.

Shortly after KCC had opened its doors for another year the US ambassador came for a visit to get an impression of the work that is being done at the children's centre.

Coming out on top of more than 1,000 nominees Kgomotso Nyalungo, founder of KCC, has won the community builder of the year award for the dedicated work she has been doing. 

For the second time Kgomotso Children Centre hosted the career exhibition to give adolescent students an idea on future plans, education and job possibilities.
