Adding smiles at Thandokazi

Belinah Shabangu and a few local unemployed ladies care for 35 children under 6 years of age at Thandokazi Preschool and Crèche which is located about 10km from the Nutritionals site in Clayville, Johannesburg.

Employee’s valued contributions included much needed funds, books, educational toys, groceries and other items. The team took on substantial tasks for Thandokazi. They constructed a steel carport shelter which, together with the class rooms and the caretaker’s quarters were given a fresh coat of paint. The engineering team facilitated the erection of a 500L water tank, built a sandpit, installed the playground chairs and painted these. The classrooms were thoroughly cleaned, bookshelves and pigeonhole drawers were installed and a new sign post was erected.

While the refurbishment of the facility took place, the kids were entertained, they enjoyed a nourishing meal and were delighted to each receive an Aspen Nutritionals party pack.
