News from some of our Projects
Celebrate Life ovens
LETCEE is very excited to be helping to start bakeries in some of our rural communities. With the help of Celebrate Life, we have managed to set up wood-fired ovens in three of the rural areas we work in. This means that six women will be starting their own bakeries, providing bread, muffins, pizza and other baked goods to their communities.We are so grateful to Cherry Armstrong and Lindo for your training, support and willingness to serve the community. We look forward to a long and successful working relationship with you!
Let's See LETCEE day 2019
On the 13th June 2019, we spent a day out in some of the communities that we work in within Umvoti. We had sent out an invitation to those who would like to visit some of our projects, see what we do and understand why we do it. We hosted 2 bus loads and some of our partners where we they got see the work done on the ground. The morning kicked off at one of the bakeries where the visitors got to see the wood-fired ovens and got a chance to taste the freshly baked bread. Two other centres were visited and this was where the visitors could see the work done with children as well as food gardens.We are very grateful to all those who attended despite the cold weather, and we do hope that everyone who attended got to understand our work. We do hope that it was the beginning and the continuation of good partnerships in ensuring that there is quality early education for all in our rural communities.
Njengabantu Children's Centre
In February this year, we requested for assistance to repair the community hall in Njengabantu which was in a state of despair. We are pleased to announce that renovations are underway. We do however need further support to complete this work.
Once completed, The Toy Library which is right next door will move here. Children will have a safe place to play and we will provide 70 children with breakfast and lunch each day. School-going children will have a place to do their homework with adult supervision.
