Uplifting essential educational infrastructure

Renovation of child-care facilities were completed on a further two of our Northern Cape farms, Norriseep and Oorkant, which enable women with babies the equal opportunity to access job opportunities in these remote areas.

About 70 children at the Masiphathisane crèche in the disadvantaged Moses Mabida township near Kirkwood in the Sundays River Valley relish excellent day-care, giving peace of mind to their parents. This was facilitated thanks to the Sundays River Citrus Company (SRCC) Foundation’s intervention and support.

Capespan Blue Hand, which has partnered with SRCC projects since inception, contributed to the Foundation’s fund for renovating its infrastructure and maintaining this essential pre-school and day-care centre at the heart of its community. During 2017 the crèche received a ‘Camille Quine – Little Libraries’ donation, enabled by Capespan and Cool Fresh.

Managed by professional nursing agency Incon Health, a partnered primary occupational health-care service programme was launched in 2015 in the Sundays River Valley on Penhill, three commercial farms and four SRCC community farms.
