The preschool is now registered to take 70 children. The pre-school provides a dry, comfortable light-filled space for AIDS-infected/affected, orphaned and vulnerable indigent children. There is a lovely, wide, grassed outside play area for the children, with play equipment. The children in our pre-school are supported by trained educarers – substitute mothers – with whom they interact on a daily basis. Two nutritious meals are provided each day for the pre-school children, breakfast and lunch, plus they are given a nutritional supplement to take home if it is needed. We also ensure that they receive all the necessary immunization and we assist in accessing medical care when necessary.
