Helping underprivileged children

Since 2007 eg have been supporting the centres main aim to provide 160 children underprivileged between the ages of 0-5 with safety, shelter, clothing, education, love and medical aid from Monday to Friday. The children are now well fed, clothed and concentrating on their educational development.

Donations and funding

eg have provided the crèche with daily supplies of e-pap (a nutritious cereal which swells when milk or water are added to provide a healthy meal), funded numerous educational toys over the past years and have donated a minimum of R60k (Rand) every year to aid the development of the crèche.

Help support DNCC

You can help DNCC by becoming a sponsor, donating or getting involved in fundraising activities. Regular donations and fundraising activities are essential in order to continue to expand the facilities at the centre.

It is clear that the health of the children has improved considerably with the regular food supplied through our sponsorship. £120 can provide one child’s food, clothing and school fees for a year. A little help can really go a long way.

By supporting the centre you are contributing to one of the greatest gifts a child can get – an education. The real difference we can make will come from educating these children so they can change their own lives when they are older. Through your support the DNCC can continue to make children’s wishes come true and ensure them a brighter future.
