As a community development organization, we aim to help disadvantaged and vulnerable children in our local communities. This is the main reason why Refilwe Community Project started a preschool. At Refilwe we believe that the basis of success in education is a good grounding; especially between the ages of 2 and 6. Mental, emotional, spiritual and physical development is crucial at these ages.
Our passion for children brought us to the point where we felt it was vital to offer the children of the surrounding communities not just a safe haven but also a place of quality education. The Refilwe Pre School started with 5 children in a small room in a house on our site. It has now grown into a four classroom school with 83 children in total.
We offer them 3 meals (breakfast, snack and lunch) a day in an attempt to ensure they are getting a nutritious meal at least twice a day. The classes are conducted in English and we do our best to ensure they get the very best education from us using the resources we have.
Through partner organizations like Stop Hunger Now, Head Start Kids, Rotary International, Lanseria Airport, and the Lego Foundation, we reach out to 33 informal daycare centers in the settlements around us, with offerings ranging from food support to teacher trainings and curriculum development. Through these programs we influence the educational future of more than 1000 children in the Lanseria area.
